    wipers are backwards

    my wipers only stop at the top of the window, like when you turn them off while they're half way through the window, they will go to the bottom, then back up to the top and stay there, instead of stopping down at the bottom where it should. why's this?

    and yes they are bolted on properly lol

    try this maybe, take the wiper arms off, turn it on then off, then put the wiper arms back on where they should sit when its off. thats should fix them.

    thanks mkymonkey

    they are bolted on properly, if they wernt then they would either try wiping off the screen or try wiping the engine bay. it's all wired up right too, and its not possible to mount it upside down

    Re: wipers are backwards

    While it does sound like a wiring issue, do these cars have wiper controllers? That may be the issue as well.

    Re: wipers are backwards

    could be a wiring issue, but i did match up all the colored wires to eachother. i never thought of the control box, though now that i think about it, it could be, since the one in there is one i found in a puddle of water lol

    gay how its way behind the dash
