D90 windshield wipers

Once my windshield wipers are turned off, they do not return to their resting place. They rest mid-windshield. Is that normal?

The system uses cables and little gearboxes that add up to a lot of slack. First port of call is to check that the wheel boxes are nice and tight. You need to get out the factory manual first and understand the system. Most of what you need to know is in there.

'Normal' is a relative term when it comes to Defenders ...

You probably need a new wiper park switch. It's part #520160. It attaches to the wiper motor. Easy fix.
