2004 WJ Rear Wiper Out to Lunch
Hey guys!

Our '04 WJ rear wiper seems to be intermittently issuesque... Periodically it will lose where it's supposed to be and will only do half the rear window (right side, left side, doesn't seem to matter). It just stops short and doesn't make the full stroke. When I shut it off it does home and nest where it's supposed to, so the home switch is working. Anyone seen anything like this?

Yeah, I'd pop the screw cover off the arm and turn it on and watch it. Does the nut move with the wiper arm every time or does the nut sometimes move without the wiper arm following? It's a tight fit, so it should work...unless the teeth on the mounting stud or on the wiper arm itself are worn out. Hopefully it's just the wiper arm...that's a cheaper and easier replacement.

Looks like just the wiper arm itself. Thanks guys!
