Wiper motor fixed!

My Glacier Blue 200tqa (still for sale) has the non-park problem, but it is 
not due to stripped splines.  The wipers sweep the normal path, but in 2 
stages...hesitates at about 9" above normal park, then sweeps down to park 
and back up to complete the sweep.  When on constant sweep, ther is no 
hesitation...when on delay wipe or when turned off, the wipers park in the 
+9" position.  Believe my problem will be cured when I (finally) install the 
used motor that I have been sitting on all winter!  Tom
