a wiper related problem but not squaking.
Sometimes my wipers work and sometimes they don't.
I drive a 93 silverado and when I push the mist button or actaully
turn the wipers on it sounds like the motor engages but nothing moves.
Not even fluid comes out.
I took mine out, eyeballed it for bad joints, resoldered, and replaced.
Worked for some months, then failed again. At that time, I replaced it with a
new one. I've heard it's something about the board material that makes it too
flexy...which does in the solder joints over time.
There was a recall, don't know if yours is included.
A much friendlier course of action would be to start your own thread, rather
than hijack someone elses.
If it is the arm, you can lubricate the hinge point and spring.
If it's the blade, put some alcohol on a cotton swab and scrub it. Then
spray some silicone lube on another swab and work it into the rubber. Or
just replace it. Also make sure the glass is free of tree sap or overspray.
