The motor itself works, but will not start from the parked position. I have to get out of the car with the wiper set to run and manually push it up the first few inches of travel. I suspect that this is from "bad/broken gears" in the assy. Now for my questions:
1) what is the liklyhood my diagnosis being correct?
2) if it is correct, what are the chances of getting new gears for the current unit, or repositioning the gears so it will work correctly?
3) is there some chance of getting a rebuilt/refurbished unit instead of paying the $200 that Subaru wants for a new unit?

The rainy season is starting and I'd like to be able to see out the back window soon. . .
