Had to repair my wiper bracket, now the wiper wont even go,

Customer Question

Had to repair my wiper bracket, now the wiper wont even go, its slams down on one side and then stops working. The motor is fine and none of the splines are stripped
JA: Have you checked the fuses? Do you know if there is power to the wiper motor? What is the model/year of your Mercedes?
Customer: Yes i just plugged the motor in and works like a dream, i have a 1997 mercedes C28 280* Im scratching my head on this one... Its almost like it needs to be aligned
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Mercedes Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi, my name is***** you remove the motor from the linkage when you were doing the repair. If you did you will need to retime the motor to the linkage.
