My wife accidentally closed the garage door while the rear hatch of her Murano was still open. It pushed the wiper blade down from it's normal parked position. If I can find the screw that holds the blade on I can reposition it, but I don't see any screw anywhere. Can anyone tell me the position of the screw?

Re: Wiper was pushed down from the parked position
You will need a flat screwdriver about 5/16 or 3/8's wide. to pry your wiper blade off. pull back on your wiper arm while prying with your screwdriver. work on both sides of your wiper blade, you will notice it starting to come off a bit at a time. just keep working it till it falls off.... good luck sawdust46

Rear hatch is locked or unlocked with a key. (if equipped) • To open the rear hatch, insert the key into the lock, turn it to the unlock position and pull up the rear hatch by pressing the handle (DOOR). You can also lock/unlock the latch (but not release it) with the central door lock system. • If unlocked, the rear hatch can be opened by pressing the handle (DOOR) and pulling the hatch up. • To close the rear hatch, lower and push down the rear hatch firmly. Make sure that the rear hatch is securely latched.
Not sure about your car, but on my Chrysler mini van the same problem happened. The problem was not the motor but the body control module. The unit had 2 relays, but the BCM actualy controls the unit. To replace the BCM was $450. I bypassed the problem by installing an on/off switch inside the car and activated the motor by by passing the BCM at the relay. That was 3 years ago, still works great. Your BCM may be the problem. Check the schematics of the relays and try doing the same.
If you don't have the manuals, your local library has online access to most service manuals that you would have to pay for.

If your hatch opens by itself with a push of a button, you will have to replace the door open and close motor located in the left rear of car. If your hatch is manual, you will just have to replace the hatch struts.
same thing happened to us. My wife came home and said the rear brake lights were stuck on so I assumed it was the brake switch...not so. Took car for a ride and noticed rear wiper did not work and when I hit the brake the rear hatched opened and door locks blew out. I started by looking at the wires in the gromet above the hatch and found almost all the wires were bare. Therefore power was jumping the bare wires and traveling back down the third break light and to the rear brake lights and visa versa.. a very dangerous situation. The best that I can tell is the wires are so short in length that they pull and chafe every time you open and close the hatch...very poor design... Note: we bought our vehicle brand new and some of the wires had electrical tape on them....seems mickey moused.
try slowly opening and closing the rear hatch-door with the wiper switch on and see if wiper trie to operate.I had an intermittent problem with no sound coming from any speakers,but I could see from the radio display that the station and song were being displayed,by chance Iopened the rear hatch and the sound came blaring out of all the speakers.Turns out there is an electrical cable that comes from the roof area into the center of the rear hatch(between the hinges) and from flexing as the hatch opens and closes several wires broke and would intermittently make up and sometimes go open again.Took vehicleto dealership and the fixed and or replaced that part of the wiring harness,claiming they had not seen that problem before,seems hard to believe,as no doubt all of these models had the same wiring harness.--Good luck
If you can move the wiper arms by hand then the 13mm bolt on the motor has worked loose, remove the plastic windscreen trim under the bonnet , close the bonnet , then operate the wiper motor for 1 cycle , switch off , open the bonnet , loosen the 13 mm nut on the wiper motor , push wipers down to the park position , tighten 13mm nut up , close bonnet then check wiper operation , they should now park in the correct position .
This could be a simple door adjustment. Have someone sit in the car
while you push in on the hatch. See if the light goes off . If the
light goes off, then adjust the striker plate so the hatch closes
