When I shut off my wipers, the passenger side wiper seems to be bouncing over what I can will describe as a stop block so that the end of the wiper comes to rest on the hood. It appears that it want to park below the stop block. On the driver's side, the wiper parks on the stop block for that wiper. Aside from this the wipers seem to be working fine.
I am guessing that all I have to do is remove and reinstall the wiper arm in the proper park position. However, I thought it wise to ask the community before I went to this effort in case I was on the wrong track.
