It appears the pass side headlight wiper is on the fritz.
I just noticed it as I left the car to enter my workplace, so didn't have time to mess with it.

It flops around and drops below the headlight. I noticed that when you move it up, it has 2 or 3 "catches". Feels like it's stripped.

Is there a "trick" to this, or do I have to replace the headlight motor. I have the CD manual, but am at work right now.

I just went out to mess with it and if I push hard enough, the arm (more specifiaclly it's axle) "pops" back in and the arm stays tight against the light. When actuated it will make one sweep (as the other makes 2) and drops back down like a winged duck.

There is a small nut that hold the wiper arm, see if it is loose.
