Wiper out of alignment.

Got hit with a little snow storm last week and I needed to move cars out of the driveway so It could be cleared. Anyways the wipers tried to move some heavy snow off the windshield and now the drivers arm Is loose. I tightened the nut on top and any tighter It's gonna strip or snap. So the problem Is under the arm. Cycling the wipers the drivers gets stuck mid way coming down. I can move the drivers arm easily but you can feel little bumps or gears that feel stripped, like It can't fully grip the shaft. Is there a nut underneath that Is possibly loose? Wiggling the passenger side arm will move the drivers arm but wiggling the drivers arm won't move the passenger side arm. So something Is loose, broken, or stripped on the drivers arm. A new wiper linkage/transmission Is $200 through Mopar and If I can fix this one I'd rather do that. 2008 Overland 5.7

your best bet is to pull off the arm to see whats stripped then visit a junkyard.
