Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try help you with this.

 

If the wipers are stopping in the exact same position each time then all you have to do is when the wipers have stopped, remove the arms from the spindle and reposition them to the normal position.

 

Another option is to slacken the drive at the motor and then reset the arms to the park position and retighten the drive arm.

 

If the arms park in various positions each time then you need to fit a new wiper motor.

 

Mark.
