Default Windshield Wiper Issue

About a week ago im driving and it had just snowed, i wasnt going to use my wipers because i've ruined my previous cars wipers doing this. While i was turning my hand clipped the wipers and the wipers shuddered to life and one wiper caught into the other wiper! I turned the wipers off immediately but now the passenger side wiper just sits there. The drivers side still works fine, the Passenger side arm is limp, i can move it freely. What do you guys think the problem is and what do i need to get to fix it? I'm hoping its like my sisters VW....they have a failsafe and the wiper sort of pops out of gear to prevent major problems and then you just pop it back.

Might want to check your linkage. The ball might have popped out of the bushing. I doubt that the motor went bad on just that one side.

Yeah, either the linkage is off or...there should be a nut that tightens down the wiper arm itself that is grooved. If the nut is loose the arm will slide up a little not letting the grooves to do their job. Id check to see if the arm is loose.
