My rear wiper is working but it does not seem to return all the way back to it's original position. Can I adjust it ? I took of the plastic cap which shows a nut holding it on. I noticed when I looked in my rear view mirror the wiper was not horizontal with the window.

You can but first make sure the little sprung plunger is free and able to drop into it's little hole freely. Also make sure the wipe arc is the full 180 degrees even if its not where you want it. If the above is ok, simply remove the nut under the cap, wiggle the wiper arm off, then close the glass tailgate and rotate the spindle back and forth until it locks up as it drops into it's hole, then refit the arm where you want it and tighten the nut but not fully. Do a quick wash wipe test and if happy nip the nut up but bear in mind it is only a small nut so it does only need a little "nip".
