Default Wipesr and Park position

Blast this winter and all of it'* wrong-doings!

All the snow got right into my wiper arms, and wouldn't allow them to cycle fully.
Since then, and now the ice has melted, my wipers will not go into the "Park" position, under the cowel. When I was prodding at them in a parking lot, a guy popped over and said there is a part I can buy from GM, $65.00 that will fix this. Is he speaking the truth, or is it as simple as removing the arms from the spindles, and re-aligning them??

Removing the wiper arms from the spindle and realigning them will make the wipers park but they will have less travel up the windshield after that. Something gets bent under the hood cowl in the linkage. On my 95, I thought it was the two linkage bars, as someone had mentioned on this forum, but there is no way they got bent by the motor. I could not bend them with a sledgehammer on my driveway. The bars on a 95 are thick and tough. There must be other weaker pieces in the linkage that get distorted or bent somehow, like the snap together ball joints or motor arm mechanism. Sorry I couldn't help more. Try searching the forums, maybe more recently someone found the actual culprit.
