156 Wipers won't return to Park Position.

Wet / not so dry day and wipers working OK but on Pulse wipe the wipers would not glide smootly over the screen. Didn't know if it was the amount of muck thrown up from the road. Towards the end of the journey I turned of the Intermittent wipe and the next time I used them they didn't return to Park. Nor did they work properly on Intermittent, they carried on continuously.
So, No Intermittent working nor a return to park when wipers turned off.

Any ideas please ?

You'll get contrasting or contradictory responses. Some will say you can fix/clean the mechanics of the motor/arm assembly, some will say you need to buy a new motor. If you do a bit of a search in this "room" you'll soon get the gist.

I bought a 2nd-hand motor for 20 and fitted it DIY. No problems since.

Good luck!

Wiper motor rotory contact plate and/or its contacts worn/bent.
Remove the cover on the end of the wiper motor and check.
