Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!

I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please
understand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problem
with the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computer
data/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; we
just diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the
vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. I am also going to
direct you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please be
patient and permit me to do what I do best.
I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in
return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there
is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I
can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you
through it.
Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail.

I do need a vin # ***** the vehicle to assist.

i do presume that you have issues with the front wiper motor correct?

1wvae0700sh004456 is the vin#. As stated, I have replaced the motor and as long as the wiper ass'y is not in place the motor turns and functions as intended. My skill level is moderate.
Expert:  Wolfgang replied 1 year ago.

when you replaced the motor did you check to make sure that linkage and pivots are nice and free moving (not binding)?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the fusecond blows when I put the wiper ass'y back in place. The wiper arms and blades. I have lubed the area that you are talking about with a lithium grease and that is moving freely.
