hello larry, if you have the wiper system somewhat disassembled, can you take a picture of what you are down to so i can see and advise from there?

Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 1 year ago.

here is how it looks under the black cap, i was assuming there was a spring inside, but you can see the other gear linkage, that is what is most likely causing the hang up.
