Jet wipers

Drivers' side wiper stopped working. The wheels are turning under dash and under hood. What do I do besides to use Rainex? Passenger side wiper works great.

    Probably broken cable.  Depending on where the break is, it can be repaired.  Usually break around the  tension wheel.  If that is the case then you can fit a new section of cable in, by using electrical connecting blocks to join the cables.  More tricky if it is in the wiper head itself where it goes through the  bulkhead.  Good luck

    Checked and the cable is not broken.

    Have you removed the arm to see if the shaft (to which the arm is fitted) itself is turning?  Possibly the arm is not fully clipped to the shaft.

    Probably the cable is broken right inside the head.  Unfortunately the glove box is in  the way so you can't see anything!  Do what Jon says,  take the wiper arm off and see if the  splined hub  is turning.
