Front Wipers Parking Position

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

Having issue with the parking position of the front wipers. They come to rest around anywhere between 10-30 degress from the horizontal.

Just changed the parking switch in the hope that it would alleviate the problem. However, issue still persists.

Looking for suggestions on how to diagnose further.

Many thanks,

Simon...

Check you have an ignition switched 12v feed on the green wire at the motor.

Check the little spindle adaptors are well fitting and screwed on tight. I would suggest some kind of thread sealer on the grub screw threads to stop them loosening and also to stop the screws rusting in place.

Forget the grub screws!!! Totally useless when they round off inside!!!

Find some nice stainless steel small bolts to fit!!! Much easier with spanner or socket for tightening and loosening!!!

Just turn the wipers off and recalibrate your brain as to where an acceptable park position is.

Sounds like the cable has slipped on the cogs, or the motor is loose

Update.

Have tested the supply to the park switch. All good there.

Looking more closely at the wipers, there is a fair amount of play. The wipers can be rotated somewhat on the splined drums. Will see if can tighten up later.

Might be the splines in the wiper arms are worn or worn splines on the pindles?

May be worth replacing both parts with new?
