2001 Ford E-150 Question: Windshield wiper motor replacement services providers and costs as well?

 

Question

On my 2001 F-150 model Ford pick up truck the windshield wipers literally locked up together yesterday during a very hard rain shower, stopped completely until I could get our to undo them, but now their back and forth movement is so unpredicable, the motor and other parts just might need replacing for sure? I could take it to Fairway Ford for repairs but based on my past experiences they will surely be way to expensive on doing this repair as well! Therefore, if you could simply recommend at least 2-3 more service providers in my local area to do this instead,then I can respond accordingly? Please advise asap on this matter if you will as well? Thanks, Nick McConnell, 126 Raintree Drive, Taylors, S.C. 29687

    Sounds like a link and pivot failure - the "transmission" that connects the wipers. Unfortunately, I do not have a reference source to get you an estimate. Consult the link Bob provided for shops near you.
