What's Your Windshield Wiper Park Position?

“Park position” refers to the place wipers stop when the system is turned off.  We designate the park position by which direction the arm travels to reach that location, either clockwise (CW) to park or counter-clockwise (CCW) to park.  These terms speak to directions as viewed from outside the vehicle looking in.

Confusing?  A little.  These diagrams should help.
