FYI I replaced the wiper motor assembly with a new OE setup. Works great. Found info online so it wasn't that hard to replace, probably took me 2 hours to pull old one out and replace with new motor.
A few weeks later the wipers stopped again, but after I pulled the motor out again, realized that the main nut under the motor that connects the shaft to the mechanism had come loose and wasn't allowing the wipers to work. Tightened it back up, and everything works good again.
I am getting a bit of "up and down" action when I turn the car on with the wipers. Not sure if I set it up right this time. Unless someone has a suggestion i'll pull it again and see if I can figure out why it doesn't stay in place when I turn the car on. It just moves up and down about 1-2" and then stops after a few seconds. The wipers work fine, used them for a 1k mile trip last weekend in the rain to FL. Just when you first start the car they move up and 1" or so and back down, probably do it once or twice and then stop. I can hit the stalk to do one full cycle and then they stop at the bottom and don't move.
