I'd get it fixed.  It's possible you could even get a ticket for that, but I'm not sure.  It's probably not the safest thing you could do though.

Yea I know.. I really should. But I just don't want to hassell with it..

No I have to change the whole wiper. They worked fine until it snowed. Then they crossed each other and got stuck. It did that 3 times and the 3rd time I guess the wiper got stripped.. I dunno. But I have to get it all replaced. I'm sick tired and I just want to go home.. I really don't want to go to AutoZone... grr.

Think I should ? I mean its just one day...

Well, I would, you never know what the weather is going to do en route, it could worsen and you want to be able to see clearly at all times. It's like driving with brakes that you suspect may possibly not stop the car, or carrying a baby in a car seat carrier that has a crack in the handle that you are pretty darn sure will hold until you make it up those 5 flights of cement stairs with no railings...well, you get the idea of how I feel!

If you go to autozone, just tell them you need a wiper & what kind of vehicle.   Tell them you dont' know how to do it & they will go out & do it for you.

My driver side one broke on me when it was raining really hard, i had them all the way up on high & was in a huge hurry.     I was taking my son to the ER from the pedi's office when it broke.   I had to pull over & take the one off the passenger side & put it on the driver side.   It did not work right, but it helped & i was able to get to Autozone.    I just pulled up outside the door, & the counter was a right there & i told the guy i had a really sick kid in the car & need wipers, but had no idea what kind or size, so they looked it up, brought them out & put them on the truck for me & then took my money in & brought me my change.

I wouldn't chance it if i were you, if one is messed up, the other could also.
