Question about Cars & Trucks
My F150 wipers start and stop at random, they do it both on low, high, and delay. The motor growls when turned on. I pulled the cowl vent and the linkage looked fine. The motor appears to be weak. Will replacing the motor solve the problem?

I had a similar problem the plastic in front of the windshield is the cowl. to remove it I had to pop plastic cover over nuts holding wiper arms. remove them then remove all the screws and two plastic pop retainers and a rubber strip and a number of slide on clips to remove the two piece cowl then remove the electrical plug on the motor and three hex head screws holding the assembly in place (if you extend the linkage toward passenger side it will be easier to remove the assembly) you can get
replacement bushings on line at www.rockauto.com I couldn't find them locally here but did find them
on line . the ones I got are wiper linkage bushings help part no 49451 they are difficult to remove so I cut the worn ones off then used a proper sized socket and c clamp to install the new ones

Nope, but you have to position the linkage in just the right position so that it will clear the windshield glass and the brackets that are located below the windshield.

try this fix
remove wiper arms from where they connect on car
turn wiper moter on then off. turn ignition off
if wiper motor is good it should put spline in off position and now all you need to do is replace wiper arms in the correct position they would be in when wipers are turned off
