You either have one of the wiper pivots flipped over or the blades are just installed in the wrong position.

They have to be out of synch with each other to do that. It's not just a motor problem.

Re: wiper motor Sign In

is that at the pivot point where the two are connected or do you remove the say driver side wiper and reinstall it at a different spot?

I don't know what's messed up on yours. I'm not there to see it. I'm just telling you what the possibilities are. Someone has to inspect it to find the problem.
