It is not easy a make any suggestion until we have a better idea of which
wiper system you have.

BN1s have the Lucas CRT wiper motor with the driving inner cables in
flexible outers. They can only park the blades by turning off the power at
the appropriate time

BN2s have a Lucas DR2 motor that has a self-canceling feature. The outer of
the cable runs in solid tubes that are of individual lengths. The main
difference on the BN2 is that a unique mounting bracket for the motor is
welded on the inner body.
