Hi There,
This is Clay, I'm a certified master automobile technician with 30 years of automotive repair and diagnostic experience.

From your description sounds like the wiper arms are out of adjustment. After turning the wipers off the the blades should rest just about an inch above the top of cowl cover. If they are to low they have to be re-positioned with the wipers in the park position. Loosen the wiper arms from the pivots, turn the wipers on and then off , then re-position the wiper arms with the blades about an inch above the top of cowl cover. The nuts that hold the arms to the pivots should be torqued to 22.8 foot pounds. If you would like the complete service procedure I gladly post them for a positive rating.

I hope this information is helpful. If you have any questions let me know. You can reply back to me through this thread at any time.

Kindly rate my assistance in a positive manner so I may have credit for helping you.
Positive ratings are greatly appreciated.
