The wipers quit working so we had to take them off and do some repairs. We now have them working but they are not in proper alignment. When we turn them off they stop in the middle of the wind shield. When on they go to and fro normally. The nut that holds the 2 sides of the wiper arms together had came off. When we put that nut back on they started working. They just won't go back to the proper off position. The wipers are in a vertical position

Hello,

It sounds like you have a wiper motor that is going out or the wiper arms need to be repositioned. Here is a diagrams that will show you how to install the motor and arms. Double check to make sure one of the arms is not installed upside down or backwards.

Check out the diagrams (Below)

Please let us know what you find.

Cheers, Ken
