You should have to just pop the car off the nut holding wiper on, remove the nut and wiper and turn the wiper how you want it and tighten everything back up. I haven't done it, but I don't see how it wouldn't work.

May have to turn it on to a certain point and attach it, not sure.

I guess, test it out before you just let it go swinging away.

You can't turn the motor.

If it gets to crazy just shut the key off. Go for it, you can do it!:)

My friend did it with his Protege5 when I had one and he said he just switched it around and it worked.

Let me know, and if it works do a how-to (why not).

The odds are if you reposition the wiper in the up mode it will contiue in the same directionright off the hatch however if you were to reverse the wires on the wiper motor it should cause it to swing down from the up position.
