For the past few years, my wipers would randomly stop working when in
"intermittent" mode. To get them working, I would have to turn them to
speed, then they would work for a random amount of time. Lately, I have
to turn them to hi-speed to get the to work. I bought a new wiper pulse
board a while back, and finally got some time to get it installed.
Here is a video on how to do this job:
How To Installl Wiper Motor, 2000-2005 Chevy/Monte

and was able to remove the one cowel clip and lift the cowel to access
the one bolt.
Remove the cover over the wiper motor, them remove the motor assembly.

Ready to go back in the car.
It got really cold last night. Woke up to frost, but apparently it was
more ice than frost. Turned the wipers on, hear a "bang", no wipers.
Being that I had
to get to work, I dried the windshield with some towels, and got on my
way. I tried turning the wipers on several times, but they didn't move.
When I got
to work, I shut the car off, then tried te wipers one last time. They
didn't move, but I could hear the motor working. Nice. That "bang" must
the linkage arm popping out of place. Rain was in the forecast, so I
scrounged up some tools and took a "smoke break". After fighting to get
arms off, I found the main linkage arm floating around. I snapped it
back on and re-assembled everything. I did have this linkage
disconnected the other
day, so I'm hoping I just didn't put it back together properly and it
won't become a problem.
Main linkage popped off.
