Wipers parking too high

both wipers park too high when not in use. Do I need to take off the arms and re-fit on a different spline setting?

If the position they stop in is the lowest they go, then yes move the wiper arms on their splines.

If they go lower than that position when working then the mechanism needs moving on the motor spline.

Are they making the extra sweep when you turn them off? Should rotate the motor in reverse, which flops over an eccentric joint and leaves the blades parked lower down. I'm not sure what to do if they don't but it's probably a faulty circuit board in the motor - check solder joints.
