The wiper motor on my car only has 1 speed, its slow and in the last position to the right? some times it needs a nudge when it gets stuck and then works fine.

I think you might need a new wiper motor

if you can stomach the price,detroit speed and engineering has a 7-speed w/intermittent setting.it is a lower profile to clear tall valve covers (my problem) and looks alot better.price:$300.00!oh yeah, it comes with its own switch and billet knob.but if you are going original,would not be correct.

Steve, per site policy, please only make 1 post of a question in the most appropriate section. Im moving this to the Elec. section where your other post is, seems the best place for it.

you might want to check your linkage to the wipers for binding. on the back of the motor there is a round ball-like fitting that slides into the linkage and has two bolts that set the tension on the ball.could be rusted or too tight.yes it should have 2 speeds.if it is the original, it could be just worn out

When you dont get replies right away, give your post a 'bump' up by adding a line to it again. That keeps it toward the top. Just dont post it in another section again. (site policy)
Also, at times, some folks dont get replies quickly as it is a weekend or good weather or folks are busy with spring cleaning etc. etc. There isnt a guarantee of a quick answer to any question, but given some time you will generally find a good answer.

The motors can be disassembled and re-greased, however they are staked together and dis-assembly will destroy the original look. I've seen them re- assembled with what look like upholstery grommets in drilled out staking holes.
Before you do anything. Double check and clean all the electrical connections, especially the grounds.

I found that advance auto has them at a good price.
in fact I changed mine 12 yrs ago with the one they offer and it works great.

Now that I have the cowl panel off should I use any type of lube or grease on the 3 ball pivots on the wiper linkage?

The upper most grommet has the brass ground contact. A ring goes under the grommet and the tab is sandwiched between the wiper halves.

So the ground sounds like a factory instalation not a back yard mechanic job.

Correct, ground strap is done at the manfacturer.
