My drivers are getting Stuck on the wiper side once they move over. However when I barely move them toward passenger they will move on there on to passenger and back to drivers side to get stuck again. They're not coming into contact with the frame or glass seal. Does anybody recognize this problem ?

Yup, They are probably binding because the dimpled area where the pivot attaches to the windshield frame is started to flex/bend. Itís fairly common, and can be fixed with a gusset on the inside of the frame to reinforce the pivot dimple. It worked on mine.

Interesting. I dont see any flexing on the outside. I see the arm kinda come out toward the front of the jeep when it stops. Not off the splines - just the in and out play of the pivot . Also interesting is when i block the wipers with my hand from going all the way to the drivers side ; they dont get stuck . My mechanic said motor but now im thinking binding

Iíd almost guarantee itís binding. Mine did the same thing you are describing.

Time to take a look at the linkages inside the frame.

They are parking there or stopping because of a bind?

Insure your "frog eyes" Where the shafts come out are not disfigured, even tilted a little bit. If the wiper shaft is not standing perpendicular all

the way around to the face of the windshield frame---it's asking to bind.

The one on the drivers side of Mr. Jeep was about to tear out, It had creased back and forth so many times as it wobbled,

I cut 2 frog eyes out of a scrap windshield frame and sealed

and riveted them on both sides, over the original frog eyes (keeping it all symmetrical looking).

If I call 'em alligator eyes, I'm referring to the same animal. ---see pic 1)

Yeah, yeah this is a real old pic and I have cut out and fixed the rust under the driver's door, new paint, and new black decals!

Continuing on with possibilities

I labeled this second diagram. Are "A" and "B's levers both pointing down?

Are the rods straight and not bent?

If you take "C" loose and let the drive link dangle---will the motor run unimpaired?

While looking for a ready made pic to demonstrate--I found this link

It shows a possible fix for a damaged frog eye!

My wipers got stuck again like they were . So im gonna have to try some more. I can t do anything right now because if you loose that clip that holds motor pivot to linkage it will run away . I have a few clips as back ups coming

I've removed the wiper linkages from my windshield frame several times without losing the clips.

Of course, now that I say that, I'll surely lose a clip the next time I have to mess with the wipers.

Have you tried running the wipers while watching the linkages? It should be fairly obvious where they are binding, and why.

Not yet I may fo that right now . But you know moving the motor toward drivers hside seemed to helped. Don't know why it messed up again. I'll take a look and follow up. Ty
