Default Wipers not parking as they should!

Hi All,

While Greta has been prepared for MOT I noticed that the wipers stopped, I did the usual, fuses etc, turned out to be corrosion around the earth contact on the motor.

Once cleaned it worked as expected only a ten minute job.

However now the wipers park in the wrong place but I never even stripped the motor down. The wipers make a complete sweep as they should but they seem to park too high.

Has anyone any ideas?
