It sounds like they are in the "service position" If memory serves correctly do this to get them out of the service position:

Service position To get into service position:

  • After you turn your car off, tap the wiper stalk down. The wipers will move into the service position.
To get out of service position:
  • To move the wipers back, switch on the ignition and tap the wiper stalk down.

replace your fuel filter first. If that does not do it, then try an air-flow meter. (if the check engine light is on it may be an airflow meter.

Wiper timing switch


Susan, inside the wiper motor is a parking peg which controls the position of wiper blades when off, It is possible the peg is damaged or broken. The wiper motor would have to be replaced in this case. You can find a used one at the auto wreckers, just make sure the plug is the same as yours, as they may be different from one year to another.Have a good Tech. check wipers, diagnose and estimate repair.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, 1 st link gives procedure to change wiper motor. Good luck

The wire part contacts are defective, you will need to replace the wiper motor in most cases to correct this. Before buying or replacing any parts have a VW experienced tech look at the problem.

Windshield wipers stuck upright when off


This is a commoon problem with what is called the "Park pawl stop". The tab is most likely bent and needs to be re-aligned, then the wipers need to be re-timed. This re-timing can be a little difficult, although the re-aligning of the tab is failry simple.

Help: How difficult is it to replace the windshield wiper motor?


All you have to do is take the cover off in between the hood and the windshield(not fun), then use a metric socket set(just make sure you have 8-18 cant remember which it is) pop out the motor on put the new one in. There are no Special tools, it's just time consuming. Probably about an hour and a half. Check the price on the wiper motor through NAPA online be sure you bring the VIN#
