Default Wiper Parking

Now that I am working through the electrics I have found that the wipers park to the right.
It's not a good look with the wipers sitting upright on the screen. Is there a simple mod that changes the parking.

move them on the spline so that when you are parked they are in the right spot.

Thanks Sloth, but that won't work because they are parked to the right. If I rotate the blades on the splines to the left then when they start their sweep they will rotate to the left which drive the wipers into the body.

You can flip your wheel boxes up the other way to get them to wipe in the other direction.

You can actually pull the wiper gear out and split the plastic and metal section and turn it 180 degree and it will have it park the other way too.

Peter, On my Harrison the wiper boxes face the other way - Mike is right.

If you've got room you could always move the wiper motor to the other side of the car - no?

Thanks Mike and Merv,

Flipping the wiper boxes seems like the easiest option. Why is it that things are so bleeding obvious after someone explains it to you??
