We actually had a post here recently where a member had taken the wiper motor apart and cleaned the electrical contacts and it made a huge difference. There wasn't anything else wrong with the motor except dirty electrical contacts. 

Oh, and grounding of the motor was another big issue as well.

You can search for the post. I will try and post a link here if I find it.

Yes, make sure the motor has a good ground.  I've found this to be my only problem when they wont park.  Not saying it couldn't be anything else but I'd say this IS the most common reason.

  Also check that the wiper arm linkage moves freely.

Yeah, It's a Hybrid...It burns gas and tires.

No matter how good she looks, somebody, somewhere, is tired of her sh*t.
