Rear wiper seized up...again!

My rear wiper seized up last August. It started by wiping slowly and then eventually seized up a few wipes later. The dealer replaced the motor. All was good. Unfortunately, this has now happened again. Wiped slowly and then seized up. I'm beyond stumped on this one.

Any thoughts why this would happen again after they replaced the motor?

Dealer replaced the motor again. Both times it was an "Internal Fault" whatever that means.

Glad they took care of the issue, though I wonder, like you, what the problem really is? Hope you don't need another replacement down the road.

If this happens again, the dealer will hear me roar.

Re: Rear wiper seized up...again!

Maybe the internal gear mech got stripped and that's why it went slow (some gears still caught and moved) until all the teeth broke, appearing seized. Just a guess tho.
