Have him remove the wiper arms off the shafts and rotate/position them correctly.

Disconnect the transmission from the motor. Position the arms (attached to the shafts) at the bottom of the windshield. Turn on the wipers with the transmission still disconnected. Turn off the wipers and allow the motor to stop before turning off the ignition. Now reconnect the transmission to the motor shaft. HTH. -Jim
