Intermittent wiper problem on '04 V6

  1. The windshield wipers have started hanging up mid-wipe on my '04 V6. Turning them off and back on helps but they only go back and forth 2 or 3 times then hang up again. They don't always stop in the same place but it's generally mid-sweep. I've heard the problem could be the motor, the multi-function switch or the GEM (which Ford no longer makes). Any idea on how to isolate the problem and where I could find a GEM module if that's it?

  2. got a buddy with an 03 v6 convertible in the yard for parts, msg me if gem and i'll see what he needs in case you need 1 2 or all, prolly get wiper mtr , MFS, and gem pkg deal or single if needed. sounds like maybe those wonderful plastic gears or maybe motor loosened up,orrrrr linkage. I'd eyeball it while someone else operates to dismiss the easy fixes you may be able to put a finger on moving parts and feel stripped gear rasp, or the wobble of loose components, or they may pop right into place
