Hello. So if the wipers park higher than expected they must do something else I correctly like go down too far and hit the cowl or too high off the side of the windshield and hit the pillar. Do they do either ? Did you remove the wiper motor or linkage at all?

They park 3 to 4 inches high. Motor was replaced. Is there an adjustment to the parking can??

Thanks
Expert:  Lou P. replied 1 year ago.

when the motor is replaced the transmission linkage (wiper linkage) has to be set properly or it will do what it is doing to you, the good news is that its fixable by readjusting the linkage on the motor stud, if you have the motor i think you have it should have 2 flats on the stud that the linkage sits on. if so the motor you got may be made wrong and you may need to replace it again. try playing with the adjustment on the stud of the motor. if thats all that was changed the the motor or the mounting is the issue. let me know what you find.

I have played with that and it seems there must be an adjustment in the motor assembly to hold the power to the parking mechanism longer so the wipers can park properly below window??

I will try lengthening transmission arm and see what happens!!
