Yes you understood correctly. I think I remember trying to do that way back when but I could not figure out how to find the start position. The other problem, as I recall was the back cover of the motor. On both of the wiper motors, the covers are warped and it seems that the cover hold the gears in place (with out the cover, the gears pop out). I am not sure if someone else has messed with them and forgot to replace a locking pin or not but this is what I am stuck with. I guess at the very least I need back covers that attach securely.
Any ideas anyone?
I tried looking for the thread but I am unable to locate it.
