    Can anybody offer any advise as to casue of Windscreen wipers not "self parking".

    Was driving the car with wipers on, when a plie of snow slid off roof onto windscreen. Ever since the wipers stop in "any" position.

    Could it be the switch...or a relay?

    Many thanks,

    Stu

    No to the switch, no to the realy, defo to the wiper motor.

    Need a new wiper motor im afraid, its the contacts inside the motor that wear down, and the one for park has gone.

    If they still park in the same position each time (but not where they are meant to) then you might get away with taking the wipers off and repositioning them.

    If its random positions then its new motor time (unless you strip and rebuild the old one and sort out the park switch).

    Suggest you search the forum for this - I had the same problem recently and found great instructions on how to fix it. It was a broken/worn contact - the one for the parking circuit - in the wiper motor itself. It is a bit fiddly but fixable for free. You just need a soldering iron to rebuild the contact. You need to remove the motor and take it apart. Common fault on older cars apparently.
