The wipers on our TR7 did not return to the park position when being turned off. The first investigation revealed that a dpo had snipped one of the wires coming from the wiper switch.
Reconnecting the wire caused another problem. The wipers would not stop anymore.
There is a switch in the wiper motor assembly that powers the motor until the wiper are in the park position. This switch is activated by a flimsy piece of metal welded at the end of the tubing. The little piece of metal was broken.
Instead of buying a new tubing for US$45, we made a small part with a piece of strapping.
This is a picture of the wiper motor assembly. If you look at the picture, a quarter of the way from the left, and half way from the top, you can see the piece of strapping.
