hi from the uk to adjust n/side wiper arm ? if you look at where the wiper arm is fitted below screen you may have a cap/covering that conseals the nut that fastens the arm to the motor wiper spindle which has a milti spline for adjusting? remove nut and pull up the arm and reposition as to prevent hitting bottom of screen ?? however if your wiper arms are the type without this nut fastening ? then same principle as above for readjusting but you will have to raise the arm verticle and carefully prise the arm off spindle there is a tool for this job and makes it easier it is a wiper arm puller you may be able to borrow or purchase? they cost approx £11 in uk but can be used for multiple other jobs ? so try 1st method you may be lucky ? when you reposition arm tap it on firmly!when you are happy with position ? good luck !

SOURCE: Wipers won't stop wiping.
Sounds like your intermittent wiper circuit is defective. Normally the intermittent feature is engaged by one of the functions on the multi-function switch (usually on the steering column). The circuit of the intermittent wiper periodically activates a relay that closes across the "Wiper On" switch. Your intermittent wiper circuit is likely defective and holding its relay closed (or the relay is stuck closed), thereby keeping the wipers on. Note: The wiper motor has an internal switch that opens when the wipers are in the park position and that is designerd to stop the wipers in the park position. When you turn on the wipers (or the intermittent relay is closed), the motor's internal switch is shunted such that the wiper does not stop at the park point of the cycle.

sounds like a loose nut. there are nuts that hold the wiper arms on, they may be under a cover but theyre at the base of the wiper arm. also there's a nut that holds the wiper linkage onto the wiper motor. if you can move the wipers independently, it's the nuts connecting the wiper arms.if you move one arm and the other moves with it, it's the nut holding the linkage to the motor.
