Over Zealous Windshield Wiper

My driver side windshield wiper will all of a sudden get really hyper and wipe right off the driver side of the car and then get stuck. I have to roll the window down to push it back, and when I stop to push it back down then it works fine for a bit until it gets hyper again. Any ideas on the cause?

I don't know if left and right side wipers have a shared motor or not ... if not the left motor (driver's side) has "issues" and needs to be replaced before something extreme happens and you maybe get a scratched windshield or A column paint damage.

Your wiper motor/transmission assembly is malfunctioning and needs replacing.

If you bring it to the dealer it should be a simple fix, with little to no diagnosing required, that's if they can duplicate the condition.

Greetings dafox2011,

Sincerest apologies for the wiper concern. I know it's frustrating in your attempts to alleviate the issue. I'd like to schedule an official diagnosis for you at your local GM dealership. Feel free to PM me regarding this matter.
