Question about 2000 Buick Regal
When you turn the wind shield wipers off they do not rest in the down (out of sight) position. they stay straight up. please help
Check to see if the stud that they sit on is not spinning . Make shure that they are tight. Start by parking your wipers. then loosten the wipers and put them back on where they should be parked and tighten them up this should fix the problem . If not you may need to buy new motor unfortunatel. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. thanks.

There is a metal tab on the wiper motor that gets bent if there is too much load on the wipers, which can happen it you try to clear wet, heavy snow from your windshield with the wipers. This metal tab activates the park mechanism when the wipers are turned off and the motor reverses to park the wipers. This tab is about 3/4" wide and stands about 1/4" high, and is next to the round steel plates, or cams, that are about 2" diameter on top of the wiper motor. The metal tab should be straight. It can get bent away from the cams, then the reversing pin won't catch on it, and the wipers go to the raised position instead of the park position. You can probably bend the tab so it is straight, and straight up, so it is closer to the cams. Then the pin should catch it when the motor reverses, and the blades will now go to the proper park position. You will need to open the hood, remove the wiper arms, remove the plastic cover on top of the wiper motor, and look for the tab to straighten. This may take an hour or more, depending on your automotive repair expertise level. I used a long punch and a hammer to straighten the tab. It is thick metal, but will still bend if there is too much snow load on the wipers, causing the wipers to park in the raised position.
