Default Windshield Wiper Help!

All of a sudden, the Windshield Wiper on my 07 Convert (one stalk on the right side) goes 'haywire' when I put the Wipers on. They start and stop when they want to, and there is no intermittent or mist. I don't think it's the motor, but instead in the stalk. How can I get into the plastic to replace the stalk, or is this a dealer fix? The part # I come up with is 68003215AD, but that's for a sedan w/rear wiper. I need the # for the Convert stalk. Thanks for any help.

Wow.....what a find. Mine is just like the first one, and the price is GREAT. Mopar at best wants $100.19, and the others want $85.91, I wasn't real sure about the OEM #, but if I can get it from AUTO ZONE.....so be it. Now I just need to figure out how to get to it without breakin plastic. To me it just looks like a simple wiring disconnect. Thanks again for your info!

I don't know about yours, but I'm pretty sure if you just remove the plastic cover from around the steering wheel, there is just a couple of screws to remove and then unplug the harness. Like I said, I don't KNOW, but it's just something I feel. LOL

Thanks for your reply. Yes I also feel the plastic cover behind the steering wheel comes off, but before I dive into it, I was hoping to find out if you push,pull,snap,pry, to get the pieces apart. I don't want to break anything by 'man handling' the thing.

The steering cover has 2 screws that, once removed, allow you to remove the covers. They do snap together on either side at the area closest to the dash.

If you search here on the forum and/or on youtube, you will see exactly how to remove the covers and remove the multi-function switch. From that point, it's just a couple of screws to remove your wiper switch assembly and install the new one. Most of the How To's tell you how to remove/repair the light/fog light side of the MF switch, but it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

Look here for how to remove the covers and the switch assembly:

REMOVAL



NOTE: It is not necessary to remove the Steering Column Control Module (SCCM) from the steering column to replace the left multi-function switch.

Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

WARNING: Wait two minutes for the system reserve capacitor to discharge before servicing any airbag or steering column components.

Remove both the upper and lower shrouds from the steering column.

Remove the one screw (3) that secures the right multi-function switch (2) on the right side of the SCCM (1).



Pull the switch (2) straight away from the SCCM (3) far enough to access the electrical connector (1) to disconnect it from the SCCM.
Remove the switch (2) from the SCCM (3).

Pull down on the piece marked...it will pop out.
There are 2 screws at the bottom, then you can pull the 2 half's apart.

Once the 2 screws are out, you can carefully pry the plastic pieces apart.
To remove the bottom half pull it out, over the ignition switch & pull it down.

Thank you very much 'Handy_Cruiser', I ordered the part on Monday, right after you sent me the pics, and I got the part today, Thursday. Thank you very much 'LionPT' for your pics on how to get into the stalk. Going to do surgery this afternoon.

Surgery didn't go so well ......Took it all apart, installed new wiper stalk, plugged everything in and tried it out, and I still have the same problem, that being, the wipers don't operate right.......could it be the wiper motor ???
