Sadly, I don't have a solution, but I share the problem.
Way back in the day, my wipers parked below the cowl, and all was well. Then for a while, they parked just above the cowl. I could still push them down, but they didn't go on their own. Now, they park about 4 inches above the cowl (measured at the end of the wiper) and now they can't be pushed down to the cowl. My little bro was driving the car durring the period of time when this happened, so I don't know the circumstances surrounding it.

Anyone know what'* wrong, or how to fix it? It'* not that the wipers have slipped on their spindles, because they have reduced travel (they aren't going off the other end of the windshield). I really don't know what has caused the problem though. I hope somebody here does.
