windshield wiper motor woes

I made the mistake one time, when re-installing my wiper
assembly, of not tucking the assembly up under the mounting
points, but bolting it on top. The result - bingo! the arms
hit the hood. I bet this is a common problem because it is
so easy to do.
Also, I had the grinding noise a few years ago, and finally
figured out that the wiper pivots were dried out. So, I
removed the whole assembly, took it all apart, relubed the
pivots and everything else, and all has been good since.
When re-assembling you must make sure the cams and arms
return to the park position relative to the motor off
position, and make sure the motor shaft nut is really tight.
I put in an extra hardened washer and used locktite.
To get everything to park correctly, remove the arms, cycle
the motor to the park position, then re-install the arms
