When I read back over my original question, I realized it may not have been very clear. To clarify: the slack I'm experiencing has nothing to do with the wiper blades or the wiper arms. What I'm talking about is the mechanism by which the arms/blades are actually moved. For example, if there is a great deal of slack in the wiper linkage (the parts in between the dash and the windshield frame), movement by the wiper motor will not be directly translated into movement in the wiper arms/blades. My wiper motor works fine, as do the arms and blades. What I believe to be the problem is with the linkage and the corresponding bushings. If that's NOT the problem, I can't figure out why the arms can be moved so easily and the arms stop for a short period of time at the end of each sweep......I'm just wondering if there's a bushing replacement kit that'll tighten everything up...
