Wipers catching bottom of windshield
« on: September 06 2019, 01:13:25 PM »
hey guys


The passenger side wiper blade is catching on the metal shield at the bottom of the windshield.  It only does it when the blades are parking.  It looks like the metal panel is not sitting as tight against the windshield as it should.  The windshield was replaced probably 10 years ago, and I donít think Its driven in the rain since.  Are there some clips missing? Or does it need to come off and be gently bent to adjust it?

given that, which is not good, I would remove the arm and re position it one notch and see if that fixes it.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Thanks guys.  I took the panel off, gave it a small bend, works good now.  Wiper doesnít pop off everytime it tries to park.

Wait til you need another arm. I had a time getting a replacement.
