Can anyone help out a dummy with setting this up? I've got it wrong three times so far. Either the blade sweeps the entire window but returns standing straight up at 90 degree angle to window or it sweeps down onto tailgate,-no good- and then not far enough along window. At least it returns to proper place then!

Edit: OK, now I'm thinking that it requires cycling the motor with linkage disconnected to properly set?

yea i had to find the happy spot
take the wiper off and cycle it a few times then reattach.
mine acts up every so often and i have yet to figure out the gremlin.
sometimes it works with hatch up but not down then it will work with hatch down then i run into the reset problem where it sweep half way fdown the tailgate.

Note to self: Take photo BEFORE disassemble next time. Linkage needs to be extended max distance towards driver's side.
