Hi John,

There is a shallow "can" like part on the wiper motor. If I recall
correctly it is secured by three screws. Loosen them and rotate the
can, not sure which way. When I adjusted mine I removed the wiper
arms and attached a short piece of coat hanger so I would know where
the wiper arms would be going. It is really bad when they try to
wipe over the bonnet and grill. Another point is that you may have
to replace your wiper arms. Not positive about the S4, but my S3
arms have a bend at the end so the blades can park parallel to the
trim. If you use your existing arm they will not look right when
parked.

reason.
