Q: How do I tighten the wiper arm on the driver side of my 2005 Chevy Cavalier? on 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My wiper was pulled over the driver's door by some person walking past my car and now the whole wiper arm unit is loose and will not work. I replaced the blades and was told the wiper arm probably needs tightening.

At the point where the arm meets the cowl there is a nut under the black cover, lift this cover to expose the nut and tighten with wiper arm in the same position as the other one. (A person cant have nothing anymore, what a shame)!!
Hope it did not damage the wiper transmission.
