The wiper motor hopefully is ok, but if the wiper arms were not mounted at the right spot, it could have damaged the motor as it returned to the rest position, unfortunately.

If there is noise, the noise could be coming from the wiper arm joint being stripped out or the motor itself assuming that the ball joints under the hood and behind the firewall are still connected.

Check these items, and I'm sure you will get to the bottom of this.

Good luck on this repair.

I installed a new wiper motor. I ran it before installing the wiper arms. it will not stop at zero. it over travels down into the cowling. I try to rest them higher then they stop some where in the middle...


Try to run the motor without the wiper arms tightened down and turn it off so it can cycle down to its rest state. Then install the wiper arms.

Make sure, that the car's windshield wiper wiring is correct for this motor.

Excessive grease in wiper motor. Motor needs to be removed and the grease cleaned out. Regrease only the areas needing to be greased.

There is also a recall for this vehicle for the wiper module. Call the dealer with your vin # to see if it has been done. I will post the instructions for motor removal and install.

1. Turn the key to the OFF position.
2. Open the hood.
3. Remove the three push-in retainers that attach the air inlet grille (leaf screen) to the plenum sheet metal.
4 . Lower the hood to the secondary latch.
5. Using a suitable marker or masking tape, mark the location on both wiper blades on the windshield.
6. Remove the covers from the nuts that attach the wiper arms.
7. Remove the nuts from the wiper arms.
Important
If the rocking action in the next step fails to loosen the wiper arm, it may be necessary to use a standard top-post battery cable terminal puller to remove the wiper arm.
8. Rock the wiper arms back and forth to loosen and remove them from the wiper transmission shaft.
9. Remove the antenna mast.
10. Remove the 10 mm hex head nut that attaches the left and right ends of the air inlet grille to the plenum sheet metal.
11. Remove the air inlet grille and reposition it up to the windshield. It is not necessary to disconnect the washer hose.
12. Remove the two 10 mm hex head bolts that attach the wiper module to the plenum sheet metal.
13. Disconnect the electrical connector.
14. Position the new wiper module to the vehicle and connect the electrical connector.
15. Install the wiper module in the plenum sheet metal.
16. Install the two 10 mm hex head bolts that attach the module to the plenum sheet metal. Tighten nuts to 30 N·m (22 lb ft).
17.Turn the ignition switch to the ON position, turn the wiper switch ON, and visually verify that the wiper transmissions operate. After visually verifying operation, turn the wiper switch to the OFF position and allow the wiper transmissions to stop moving before turning the ignition switch to the OFF position. The wiper motor will now be in the PARK position.
18. Using the marks or masking tape that were placed on the windshield, align and position the wiper arms on the wiper transmission shafts.
19. Install the nuts on the wiper transmission shafts. Tighten the nuts to 30 N·m (22 lb ft).
20. Install the covers on the wiper arm nuts.
21. Remove the marks or masking tape from the windshield.
22. Open the hood.
23. Install the three push-in retainers that attach the air inlet grille to the plenum sheet metal.
24. Close the hood.
25. Verify that all functions of the wiper system (low, high, delay, etc.) operate properly.

I am trying to replace the front wiper motor for my 2001 chevy venture. The wipers are not parking fully down, and the intermittent setting parks the wipers about half way up until it is ready to wipe...


Check that you have connected the wiper motor correctly - ensure that you havent inadvertently got the polarity wrong!.
Leave the wiper arms off until you get the motor to run and park using the normal wiper on/off switch.
The motor 'park' control switching is normally an integral part of the motor drive gear and is not adjustable.
During your testing, affix a temporary indicator pointer to the end of a wiper arm drive shaft (use masking tape or similar) to prevent damage to motor or levers.

There should be a circuit breaker which shuts down the wipers when they are frozen. Sounds like the breaker didn't do its job and the wiper motor fried. My guess is it needs replacing.
