Wiper Park issue (only on normal/fast speed)

Doing some searches and need a clarification on which part is correct for my issue.

Symptom: the wipers do not park on Normal and Fast speeds, they just stop where ever you turn off the switch.

they DO park on Intermitant setting (return to the bottom as expected)

Wiper relay ?
(The AMR2341 is for the 93 110 or the 94-95 D90.)

or a limit switch issue on the motor?

Mine works exactly the same way. Either it's supposed to work that way or we have the same problem.

It's most likely the park switch on the motor. The relay doesn't control the park so I'm not sure why it's working the way it is but I would take the park switch off the motor and inspect the plastic rod that controls the switch. It comes off pretty easy, just pry outward a little bit with a small screw driver and then slide it to the left. Once it's off you'll see the platic rod I'm talking about.

Sorry don't need any Crickets!

My issue is that at speeds the blades smack the base of the windshield on the right side. If I'm at a light or driving slowly the smacking is reduced? I would take the random stop any day over smacking on the return.

You can adjust the arms. There is a small piece of spring steel that holds the arm on by pressing into an indent otherwise it just basically sits on a splined shaft. If you apply a little pressure straight up off the splined shaft it will slide off. Do it gently so you keep the position. Rotated it one spline clockwise and push back on. Repeat until smacking stops.

ok thanks - dumb question - does anyone have a picture of the park switch on the motor or where it is generally located - i took apart the dash a bit last night to get a look at the motor but want to be better prepared.
