    Default Wipers parking @ 80 degrees

    Hi,

    Checked under technical for wiper infon, but nothing specific to my issue (although lots of good stuff).

    Basically raining as usual and the wipers working fine, stop the wipers and they parked @ about 80 degrees (near vertical) on the downwards sweep. Reseting ignition didn't solve anything (not removed the battery yet).

    Looking @ the how2 someone has done a great picture thread on removing the linkage and opening up the motor etc. This shows a white plastic cog with a cam which some how activates a microswitch (park position) with a metal lever. Anyone experienced an issue with the wipers losing correct parking position due to the micro switch/cam etc.

    Worse case I guess maybe the timming box or software is miss timing things which would be impossible for me to fix.

    Why do these things happen now the weather has turned making it harder to strip things apart
