Bzzzzt... Oh I'm sorry, your answer must be in the form of a question.

Let me repeat the answer for our other players.

Remember, this is a daily double.

"""Wipers work fine... intermittant, slow, fast, full sweep..all the way down,
"""all the way up.

"""However, when it comes time to stop... they stop about 1/3 of the way up
"""from the bottom of the sweep (remember, they do still sweep all the way to
"""the bottom so it's not a question of taking off the wipers and adjusting

Problem only occurs when wipers are turned OFF... they DO sweep all the way
to the bottom when ON.
