    Default Wiper Position

    My front wipers 'stopping point' is facing straight up in the air! They then go over to the right for the last few inches, back down to the bottom, then back to facing straight up. I was wondering if this might be the wiper relay, but when I spoke to my local Vauxhall Dealer they said the motors get water in them and it's "probably forgotten where it's supposed to stop". I know other people on here have had problems with the motors....is this likely to be the case or are they trying to fleece me for a new motor when it could be the relay? Would it be worth me buying a relay before I take my car in on Friday and see if this solves the problem?
