    Got a problem with the front wipers that is really starting to naff me off now :angry:/> . When they are working, primarily the passenger side, it sweeps to below the screen, then back up again so that when turned off, they rest with the wipers about an inch or so back up the screen. Effectively, one turn of the motor is taking them back and forth once, but then not stopping, but starting the next sweep before stopping. Any ideas?

    Try taking the wiper off the knurled drive, move it up a couple of grooves and replace, that should put it into the right rest position. Finn.

    Done that already and all the happens is they end up in the rest position higher up the screen or the other way and completely off the screen.

    Only a guess from recent staring at wiper assemblies, that something could be loose in the motor-to-bracket-to-arm zone of it.
