Thanks DenaliXTC

My issue was the 3 nuts securing the motor to the linkage were loose. The wipers worked, but I would get the occasional bang on the cowl. Finally got sick of it and this DIY helped me out big time. Once I got it out, the motor was barely hanging on to the linkage. Tightened/cleaned everything up and she's operates like she should.

Oh, and I agree, the hardest part was that @#*$*%! 10mm nut securing the linkage to the body. Very awkward location.

Thanks for taking the time and pics!
