The windshield wiper motor is running fine, but noticed that wipers not moving, so we noticed that on transmission ball/socket joint the white plastic "push lock on" cap was missing. The arm was slipping off the joint when moving. Bought ENTIRE transmission was the only to fix problem! What the. Swapped out old trans for new one. Put wipers in OFF position and put on the wiper arms in down/ off position. When started wipers first time, the wipers did not move. After shooting on the problem, found that the only way wipers would "work" was to put wipers at 45 degree as the starting or off position, then turn on wipers for only one rotation and the wipers would move down to the bottom (the correct off position) and move up to the very top (as it should correctly do) and then go down and stop at the 45 degree angle position. That was one complete "cycle". So in order for wipers to work because of this misalignment, you would have to drive around in the sunny weather with your wipers at a 45 degree angle or 1/2 way position, right in front of your view, and if it would rain then you could turn on wipers and it would make the above cycle. Not good. I know it was mentioned that in the transmission that the arrow mark on the ball/socket joint should align up to mark. If that makes sense? Is this the problem or did I possibly install the transmission wrong. Motor still works fine. No rain in forecast. :0 Thanks Big Joe
