I just replaced the wiper linkage on my 2005 Honda Accord. When I reinstalled the wiper arms/blades and turned the car on to test, the wiper cycle seems to be wrong. Now the wipers have a short initial travel, followed by a long reset, and improper park position. I tried letting the motor cycle without the arms and replacing, and I tried to put the arms at the furthest travel extent, but either the cycle still isn’t working right.
- When I put the crank arm back on, was it supposed to be aligned in a particular way? It seemed like only one orientation allowed for it to connect to the arm.
- The guide I was using had me turn the wipers on and then stop them at their apex prior to removal, perhaps this threw off the cycle?
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
