2000 Chevrolet Venture van wiper arm postion?

Click on the link.
the picture is for wiper blade, you see the inches for each wiper above and below the blackout. To adjust the blade, if that is the problem, remove the blade and measure accordingly to measurement in picture. You may need to use a puller to remove blade. My info says a battery terminal puller should work fine, after you remove the nut. To install, my info says to torque the nut to 35 ft lbs.
I found this info in my database, it's all I have to go by. Hope it helps.

2000 HYUNDAI ACCENT, problem is the Windshield Wiper operation is malfunctioning, in the Delay mode, and in the off position, Windshield Wiper arms/blades stop at the half point on the Windshield glas

The park position is controlled inside the motor/actuator assembly. Not sure if it can be repaired. See if it is assembled with screws versus rivets. A new assembly is less than $100.

Wiper blade on my 98 C230 goes a quarter of the way up then stops and makes clicking noise for about 10 seconds. When I move it by hand it will go back into start position. Should I still try the lube...

sounds like the gears inside of the wiper mechanism have gone bad. there is a strip of gears in the shape of a half moon that the wiper motor rides on in order to move the wiper blade back and forth. When those gears strip out the wiper will only move a certain distance and then stop. One way to tell is if you can move the wiper arm by hand. When the gears are good the wiper arm should not move at all by hand.

Last week my 99 dodge caravan wipers got stuck in the upright postion. The motor sounded stripped and so I replaced it. Now I am having trouble getting the timing right. I flipped the imtermittent switch...

Remove the wiper blades and let the motor cycle a few times as if you were actually wiping the windshield. Then turn off the wipers at the control knob or lever. Re-attach the wiper arms so they are parallel with the bottom of the window yet still on the window. Hopefully this will help. Also, since you replaced the motor, did the new motor you installed have intermittent capability like the original one did? If the motor didn't have intermittent capability like the original then this could also be your problem
