    Am having problems with my passenger wiper getting stuck at the bottem of its downward stroke and stopping my wipers from moving until I go out and move it by hand. Anyone else have this problem? If so, how do I remedy?

    Reposition your wiper arms, you may have to offset them. I recently replaced my windshield frame and glass, and burned up the original wiper motor because they got stuck, I turned off the motor, but it was trying to get back into the default position and smoked the motor. I re-greased all of the parts that touch, took it all apart and put it back together per the diagram so that everything was lined up properly, but it kept binding. So I just kept moving the arms around until I found the right position that the new motor is happy with. When the drivers side wiper is at the bottom of the swipe from the passengers side to the drivers side, the passenger wiper is at about 11 0clock (looking out).

    You can also remove the oval pplastic discs in the frame on the cab-side, and keep a screwdriver handy to move the linkage and get it started again, rather than push it over from the outside. good luck, Alex

      Another wiper linkage sticking...What a screwed up design. Mine's still the same way, I'm done trying to mess with it. Don't know if theres anyway around it once it happens. You'd think there would be some other design that would bolt up in there and get rid of all the junk OEM parts that are there.

        Here is what I found on universal wiper kits:

        They look adjustable so you can set your distance between arms and run the motor anyplace.

          Are you sure you have the linkage installed correctly. Had the 2 pieces interchange top & bottom, first on last off, on the motor arm of our Jeep and was constantly binding. Looked up how it was supposed to be installed in the Jeep Chilton, made it the same and it has been working since.

              got it fixed

              I figured out the problem. The wiper pivot shaft that sticks out through the windshield frame was ****ed just enough to bind the linkage up. I adjusted the pivot shaft to straighten it and it works perfect. Thanks to everyone who took the time to help me. seejay-5
