WINDSHIELD WIPERS

2006 Dodge Caravan

Electrical problem
2006 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 118000 miles

My wipers appear to be out of sync.
they work OK for a couple of sweeps then the drivers side blade seems to override and get tangled up with the passenger side blade. This is now my 3rd broken blade in the last couple of months. Can the moter be adjusted? Do I need a new motor? How much (approx) would the repair cost?
Thanks.

I believe you just have a loose wiper arm. In 06, the arm bolted to the mount. There is a hinged cover where it attaches. Open it and check to see if the bolt is loose. If it isn't, then remove the arm and check the threads to make sure they are not stripped. Other than that, you need to remove the cowl at the base of the windshield to see if there is a problem with the linkage. As far as the motor, there is only one and it runs both blades. If they are working, the motor is fine.

Let me know what you find or if you have other questions.
