Funky Winshield Wipers

My wipers work fine, but they have a massive problem (besides having only 2 speeds and being quite loud )...

The left, driver's side wiper is fine - when the wipers are off, it sits where it should (diagonally accross the windshield). But the passenger side wiper, when off, sits almost straight up and down the windshield and when it's on, it goes left below the windshied. And I don't know how to put it back into it's place!!!

Any ideas?

If you really don't know what I mean, I'll have to get some pictures...but I have nowhere to post them....

The wiper arms are easily removed ..

If you check in your handy-dandy Haynes manual, it shows how to remove the arms off the wiper-studs.

Basically, pull the arm off, and put it back on again at the angle that you wish it to be at. If you have problems pulling the wiper arm off the wiper-stud, visit your local windshield place who could do it for you in under 10 min.
