    1976 windhield wiper parking issue

    The windshield wipers on my 1976 stop in position when turned off. I have to time turning them off when they are at the bottom of their travel or they just stop where ever they are when turned off. It has been this way since I got the car 5 years ago. Any ideas on how to correct this problem?

    It has been many years but I thought there was a

    position switch inside the motor gear box case. Have you had it apart yet?

    I have not torn anything apart yet. The wipers work but they just won't park. Maybe I will take a look over the weekend. Thanks for the suggestion.

    mine do too. Turn the wipers off before you turn off the engine.

    Why not fix it????

    Run the wiper, shut the wiper off. This stops the motor in it's parked position. Then remove the nut that holds the arm on the motor shaftand reposition the arm so that the wiper is in it's parked position. Reattach the arm, good to go.
