I had to finally bite the bullet and have the windshield replaced on my 2004 CTT.  

 

Safelite did a really good job, and I'm happy with the glass.  The smell's almost dissipated from the urethane.  I've only got one remaining issue.

 

The wiper blades park too high.  Especially the right-hand side.  The tip of the blade is, at rest and "off," maybe two or three inches higher than it should be.  

 

I can't figure out, nor can I find the maintenance procedure for how to adjust it.  I pulled the 16mm hex nuts off the arm, but it appears that there's no adjustment there.

 

I found a reference (somewhere; can't remember where) to a non-reusable washer.  And there is a washer in there, and it might not be new, but I can't see how that would aid in adjustment.

 

Is there somewhere where the wiper parking position adjustment is described?  I don't want to take it somewhere if it's not a chore to adjust.

 

Thanks in advance!

1. Mount wiper arms on the wiper linkage.
 
2. The windscreen is provided with points to which the wipers must be positioned. Priority 1 is assigned to the driver's wiper at points and D . Then position the passenger's wiper at points A and B.

This is something that they should have take care of after replacing the glass.  But Loren gave you the best info.

Be careful though, I've heard from the techs that replaced my CS windshield  a couple years ago that those adjustment bolts break easily...
