Could you post a picture of what your problem is? I'm thinking of pulling my hood off pretty soon and painting it so I wouldn't mind tearing into the wipers a little but I would just need to know what to look for.

Hi Gondorian!

Look at the forth picture in this link:
http://www.justanswer.com/ford/3ws68...-work-slo.html

That crank arm on the motor spindle should have been marked when i changed the motor, but my motor was destroyed so i lost my reference to the park position.

Thank you for offering your help! But i don't want you to disassemble anything for my sake. Because you could destroy the clips in the cowl. So the only reason you ever should open this up is when you have to repair something or change the pollen filter. But thanks anyway. In this forum it looks like i am the first to change the wiper motor since nobody else know this crank arm position.

My cowl clips are already broken and I've been trying to figure out a way to fix them. It's kind of on the back-burner but I need to do it sometime.

Ok. Then maybe you can help after all. Regarding the cowl clips. When my clips got destroyed i used superglue on the black pieces in the cowl an glued it back together. If this black plastic is damaged on yours and you miss the pieces they probaly are laying under the cowl. And the white clips that broke off the round piece on top, i bought new ones. They are cheap.

Just let me know when/ if you are doing this and i can describe how to look for this crank arm.

Ok, i will think about the easiest way to describe this. Do you have a camera?

Happy long weekend!

Ok here is a description. Assuming your wiper arms and cowls is disassembled.

1. Turn on ignition and pull the wiper handle down one time (one swipe) and let the motor run one cycle to stop at the park position. Turn off ignition.
2. Loosen the 3 screws that is holding the whole wiper assembly. Turn the assembly around so you can see the motor crank arm. You dont have to take it out of the car just turn it around.
3. If you have a camera take a picture of the position of the crank arm. If you don't have a camera just try to describe for me how the arm is positioned.

If you start doing this and have questions i will help you underway.
