thanks for the info on the windshild motor...is their any special tool that i need to remove the bad caps since the arms would not move? also is this something i can do myself i use to be a machinist so i am mechanically incline thanks..
It is a no brainer. Anyone can do this. You will not damage anything. The caps are shaped like a hemisphere and snap in to hold the wiper arms in place.
Lack of grease pushes the cap off after a decade. When mine fell off I glued it and applied lots of auto grease.
check to see if the nut that connects the wiper arm to the motor is tight. i had this same problem, and it ended up being just a loose nut. just look at the base of teh wiper arm until you see a nut on the exterior (facing the sky) and make sure that it's tight.
