So I thought since my wipers were stuck in the up or return position I could just loosen the nuts and re position and then they'd be parked in the correct position. This is false. They go down by the headlights instead. I replaced my motor last year by buying a new one from Bus depot. I'd guess its Brazilian - So it works, just leaves my blades in the up position instead of lying flat out the way - all wipers when not in motion. Is there an easy fix that I am missing? OR any ideas of new decent wiper motors that will last more than a year which is actually a few months since this one rests in the winter and I can honestly say I haven't hit too much rain since the install.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

PS nothing against Bus Depot just saying point of purchase.

Look at detailed description under picture.

"originally designed for Brazilian made Buses, but will fit German made Buses as well."

"The motor mounts at a different angle, so to compensate you may need to remove and reposition the splined lever arm so the wipers still park in the correct position."
Splined lever arm. Is on the motor.

The fix WAS easy, before you installed the new motor. Note that the position shown in the Bentley manual (Fig. 10-4, Electrical chapter)
for the "drive crank" (= "splined lever arm") may not be correct. It certainly wasn't for the wiper motor on my '71 bus.

Right
IT was working fine and I had a bracket made to adapt it to my bus but now it won't resent to correct "parked" position.
So it worked for a little bit.

Thanks for all the input thus far.
