Thumbs up 1974 240d wiper park position

I just replaced my wiper motor and my wipers are parking in a vertical position, I have searched the forums and I couldn't find anything. Any help would be great!! Thanks

the wiper arms are adjustable. At the base of the arm there is a nut, might be under a cap. While wipers are off loosen the nut , put wiper where you want it , tighten it down.

If all is operable then the park position is a part of the wiper motor assy. Run the motor with the arm disconnected from the tapered shaft of the motor. When the motor parks after switching off at the switch the arm should be installed with the blades in the proper parked position. Changing the arm length will make the two arm out of sequence.
