My headlamp wipers seem to operate properly (when headlights are on and windshield washer is operating). However, the left wiper does not return to resting position and remains in the middle of the headlamp. Is there an adjustment for this?

Lift the cover over the pivot point. Loosen the nut just enough to move the wiper arm back to its proper resting position. Retighten the nut. That's it.

If the wiper's properly running thru its normal range of motion, be sure that when you hit the switch to wash the windows that you don't hang on too long...occasionally I've noticed that a wiper will stick in the middle of its range on each of my cars, but if I simply re-activate the washer pump briefly the wiper goes back to its proper resting place.

Thanks for the help folks... On closer inspection, I notice that (oops!) it's not working at all! (just the left wiper, that is) It must have just happened because it was working about a week ago. I recently had some body work done in that area so I'll check for damage.

Anything else I should check before ordering a new motor? Are left and right wipers fused separately?
