Subject: <02> wiper woes
Wow. You could pay air fare for me or lotsa other guys to fix this one!!!
Well, maybe not
Detach the motor from the linkage. One 10mm nut. Use a screwdriver and then
lift the linkage cam from the motor. This should be done with the wipers in
the parked position and electrics off. Now, grab the wiper arm and try to
follow its normal path. There should be little resistance. If there is you
have to start working your way down the wiper linkage and see where it is
binding. The pivot for the individual wiper can get packed with "stuff" and
increase the friction co-efficient. The "stuff" , just like
counterproductive digesters, needs to be cleaned out so that things can work
the way the are supposed to.
If this fails, email the following people, since they seem to want to get me
off the Digest and maybe they have ideas that are better than mine!!
