Sounds like the motion transmission lever on the motor gearbox has slipped 180, check to see if the retaining nut is tight.

You can, however that is a bandaid, the cause is yet to be solved. Mine began stopping randomly, then quit moving entirely in a heavy downpour on I 75 last year. The gearbox shaft has splines that stripped, allowing the lever to slip on the shaft.
My temporary repair to get us home was to place a washer under the nut, which allowed a much tighter fit. The downside is, this placed stress on the shaft and entire gearbox.
My temporary fix worked good enough I had forgotten about it until I read this thread.
Now I've got to remove that motor/gearbox and find a new one before our next trip.

Just unbolt the arm and reset it to the correct position. Then bolt it back down. The arm material is softer then the motor shaft so it will strip the inside of the arm out first. I did testing on windshield wiper systems for GM for a couple of years. Generally a heavy load such as snow or blade being frozen to the windshield will strip the inside of the wiper arm. Or the nut wasn't torqued right during production.

You can not reposition each wiper arm !

They will try to travel off the windshield as soon as you turn them on. If they are both up and you reset them down, they will first travel down, wiping the front grill, before comming back up.

You need to reset both arms at the same time, at the wiper motor shaft and linkage connection. At that point Its rotational, not back and forth.

The shaft splines stripped on mine, lever is still good. The extra washer allowed more travel on the threads for the nut to push the lever on further.
