WINDSHIELD WIPERS

2005 Ford F-150 • 75,000 miles

I will turn my wipers on and they will start out slow then stop. The wash will still spray out. Then I will have to manually push the wipers back. This would reset them in the past but know it will keeps doing the same thing. Please help. Thanks

Sounds like the wiper motor is binding up or has a bad bearing. Either way it has to come out. When motor out make sure the arms are free to move with almost no resistance. If ok replace motor. I'm thinkin motor cause you usually cannot put the wipers back by hand anyway.
