Parking Headlight Wipers - How To?


Hi guys. Anyone know how to "park" the headlight wipers? The right one is frozen in the upright position giving quite the quizzical look to the front. I really don't need these anyway. Would also like to turn off the washer fluid jets too.
Thanks. Bill

Try cycling them and see if that works. Sometimes they don't park properly and another cycle cures it. If the wiper motor isn't working, then you have other problems, but try this first:

1) Turn on headlights
2) Turn on windshield wiper
3) Press windshield washer / squirter briefly
4) Headlight wipers should cycle a few times and then park



Tried cycling it several times and the front still has a quizzical look. Must be the motor. Lasted 175K miles and 16 years; longer and farther than my first wife.
