I found the following posting that might help. It sound like there are bushing that wear out in the linkage that can cause this. There is also an adjustment made to the linkage under the cowl that might have an impact. There is also a pdf of the linkage (a bit low res though).

Just to double-check, it is hitting at the top AND the bottom of wiper travel? I dealt with this on my '96, is why I ask.

Yes, it does hit both top and bottom.

Thanks, I will try what you suggested. I did notice that the problem started after I had the windshield replaced. The only part that confuses me is that the problem is intermittent and started 1 month after the windshield was replaced. I will let you know the outcome.

My grandmother wore hers out. She's the type that turns them either on high or off, no intermittent or Low. The motor had to be replaced because the clutch simply wore to the point it couldn't restrict the movement properly.
This was on a '96.
