This is different for many makes and models. To be more specific you need the year, make, and model of the vehcile. In general most but not all wipers are adjusted by a nut at the base or bottom of the wiper arm where it enters the cowl of the vehicle. Sometimes this nut is coverd by a piece of plastic or metal that will pop off or is hinged to access the nut. If this is the case loosen that nut, move the wiper arm where you want it, and tighten the nut.

What could cause the intermittent windshield wipers to quit working on my Audi Coupe?

Failure of the windshield wipers on your Audi coupe can be linked to only a few possible causes. The first being that the motor that drives the wipers has failed and needs replacing. If the motor is good check all electrical connections for the motor and be sure it's properly grounded and receiving power. If the problem isn't the motor itself or the connections check to see if you have blown a fuse or fuse relay for the motor as this is the last of three possible causes of the failure.
