Welcome to Matthew's Volvo Site.

When you say the wiper has stopped working is the shaft that the wiper arm sits on still turning? If it is then the retaining nut is possibly loose. The drive shaft is splined and the wiper arm is made to fit the splines. If the nut is loose the splines will not engage.

Check to see if the shaft turns. If it does, tighten the nut.

If the shaft doesn't turn then it is possible that part of the wiper mechanism has come loose.

Bill.
