overdriving windshield wipers
Posted 10 October 2004 - 01:01 PM
I seem to have a problem w/ my windshield wipers on my 95 legacy...hoping someone can give me some advice.
I've noticed lately that the wipers are awefully loud and finally observed that the driver's side is overdriving (going past its designed stopping point before returning) and hits the a-pillar.
Does anyone know it this can be fixed by adjusting something or is it time for a junkyard visit to find a new motor assy?

Didn't think about repositioning the arm. I'll have to check it out.
I guess there's a possibility that something is stripped, because when first turning the wipers on, they do fine for first few swings (stopping well before a-pillar) before overdriving and hitting the pillar. It also seems they overdrive at the opposite end (judging by the noise) although I haven't verified this yet. Maybe the nut holding the arm is just loose...

Most automobiles have splined posts to prevent this from happening.
