You've tried to turn them back on and off a couple times correct?

you bent your wiper linkage arm. it * from turning them off when you have snow packed in down there. This will cause them to not sink in the future, forever...

you have a couple of options..

1) replace the arm which is a PITA to get to and costs a stupid amount of money..

2)change how your wipers sits on the piece that roates them.. This will cause them to not make the full sweep, but will allow them to sit down in when not on.

Bending the arm back is rough to get it right, it bends only slightly but affects the sweep by like 4 inches. Good luck and let me know what you end up doing.

Mine are the same way m1030w6. But I know why.
I tried to use them in the ice and thought I had all cleared before I used them, guess not.

Now they rest about 1 1/2 in above the chrome peice. Mechanice at work said I messed up the motor, or the teeth on it. So, heres another thing to chech.
