Hello T2000,

it sounds like the lid has been replaced in the wrong place as there is a park switch contact in it. If you start the wipers then switch them off off in the park position, lift the lid to see where the contact arm is then relace the lid so the contact arm is on the insulated section. This should be close and some minor rotation of the lid should get them parking correctly. When adjusting the lid lift the wipers up so they stay up, this stops them possibly doing any damage if they over run when doing your final adjustment.
