Yes, I understand. The video also shows how to reset the position of the wipers.

How would it get out of adjustment if the motor or arms have never been removed?

Do they park after they stop? Park is when they move a couple of inches down after they come to rest the first time when you switch them off. You will probably end up needing access to the motor to see whats going on. Post #2 has a good description of how to get to the motor.

well,,,,, i was going to take apart the cowling to get to the wiper motor, but yesterday the wipers went back to normal PARK. I'm in SoCal so rarely use wipers. So for now, i ain't touching a dang thing. Thanks for the tips , especially the video.
