Thank you for allowing me to help you with this concern today and am sorry to hear that this is happening. I will have to ask you a few questions so that I can get a better understanding as to what may be going on with your Camry.By realign, do you so that when you turn the switch off, the wipers park in the correct down position?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!As mentioned above, installing the wiper arms would just require running the wiper motor with the arms removed, turning the switch off and allowing the motor to park, and the installing the arms to the position you want.Can you explain exactly how you've been attempting to install them?
Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The motor does not stop at the bottom it comes back up which makes the blade go to far south into for back up in the windshield
Toyota Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
You're installing the arms without parking the motor then. Remove the wiper arms, turn the key on and turn the motor on. Turn the motor back off and allow it to stop. If the park switch is working correctly it will stop in the parked position. Then install the wiper arms to the position you want.

I do not know what the parks which is but it goes down and then comes back up
Toyota Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
The park switch is in the motor and causes the motor to park in the correct spot when the motor is turned off. If the arms are going down and then back up it's because parts have been installed incorrectly. You need to remove the arms, turn the key on and turn the motor on. Turn the motor back off and allow it to stop. Then install the wiper arms to the position you want.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have done that 20 times at least and it still goes down and comes back up if I adjust the wiper blades to go farther up they will come down in the middle of the windshield
Toyota Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Did you take the arm off the wiper motor or did you pop the linkage off at the bushing?
Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I used my wiper motor put it on the wiper transmission
Toyota Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
I assumed that. On the wiper motor there is a short arm that is attached with a nut. Did you remove this from the wiper motor or did you pop the linkage off of that arm?
Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No I remove the nut and put it on the new wiper transmission
Toyota Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
How did you ensure this arm was clocked correctly to the motor?
Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No I can't find any markings on it and done the Internet and could not find anything about it that's why I'm with you guys
Toyota Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
There aren't any markings, if the arm is removed for some reason then you need to make sure it gets back to the same position and without the motor turning. If you removed that arm you needed to do so without allowing the motor and linkage to turn, the new linkage needed to be placed in the same direction as the old when removed, and then the arm placed back to the same place on the motor and then tightened. Then you can reinstall the assembly, run the motor to make sure it's parked and install the arms. If you didn't make sure the linkage was in the same direction when installed and didn't install the arm on the motor in the correct position then it's going to be trail and error from here to get it correct.

Well it's obvious something is wrong and I didn't do it right because I thought there would be markings on it that's why I pay 20 bucks for you guys to help me out it sounds like I've spent 20 bucks for no reason
Toyota Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
Unfortunately we're unable to help physically. What you need to do is remove the nut and remove the arm from the motor, run the motor to park it, and then rotate the arm to where you believe it will be in the correct position. Reinstall the nut, park the motor, reinstall one arm and run the motor to see what it does. If the linkage wasn't installed in the correct position and the arm not in the correct position you will have to keep adjusting until it is correct.

Unfortunately that's the problem I don't know how to readjust I have adjusted it 100 times already Toyota should come out with some kind of markings
Toyota Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
I've never seen a vehicle with markings on wiper linkage, correct installation is up to the installer.As I mentioned you need to remove the arm from the motor, park the motor and turn the linkage and arm until it appears correct, reinstall the arm, park the motor again and reinstall a wiper arm to see what it does. You can make small adjustments at the motor from there.If you're not able to do it then a dealer or shop most likely wouldn't charge more than .5 labor if you bring them the vehicle in a partially assembled state as it will only take a few minutes to adjust.

Every vehicle I have researched has a mark of some kind to align the motor to the wiper transmission unfortunately toe Yoda does not have any YouTube videos for Internet videos anywhere to show you how to do this I am not stupid I just can't find how to do it so I have tried trial and error evidently I have wasted 20 more dollars
Toyota Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
In over twenty years of field experience and just short of sixteen at a dealer I haven't come across a wiper motor that is marked for linkage. It's going to be trial and error from here using the method I described.

Thank u for ur patience but you actually haven't helped much already tried and did what you have suggested thought that I would get a professional
Toyota Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
I would recommend seeing a shop or dealer if you're unwilling to attempt further adjustment. They shouldn't charge more than .5 to 1 hour of labor to repair it.
