I have a 01' Mercury GM. When I turn the wipers
"off"...they stop in the "up" position!
So turn em off in the down position
Really helpful..... Turn the wipers off and if they don't stop where you want them to, just move the blades to where you want them to stop. It's a ratcheted connection and that's how you adjust them. If that scares you, just have a mechanic spend two minutes doing it.
