If the blade is worn out...the answer is a whole new wiper arm. These can be got from Fiat dealers...or usually from Ebay for a fraction of the dealer price. Swapping them is simply a case of lifting the cover on the old one, where the wiper is attached to the car, undoing the bolt and slipping the old arm off....then fitting the new one in the reverse method of removal. Alternatively, what I prefer to do is to just change the rubber. If you buy an ordinary wiper blade of the same size or bigger, you can just take the rubber out, cut it down and slot it into the wiper arm. This way is much much cheaper, but involves a little more work. Replacing the arm is probably the most sensible option though if you want to be on the safe side.

The drivers side windscreen wiper on a fiat punto has stopped working but the passenger side is fine How can you fix it?

This has just happened to my wifes Punto. Had to replace the wiper motor, as the linkage came apart due to wear. You cannot replace the arms, therefore, new motor. You could just try clipping it back in, but it is doubtful. Lift the bonnet. At the back at the top, just under the windscreen, you will see the arms. The one you are talking about will most probably be lying at the bottom, disconnected. Rip off if you ask me.
