Default Re: Sedan Wiper Arm Alignment

Back from the dead...finally taking care of this!

I adjusted the driver's side wiper to the 50mm position, but the hood hits the wiper arm hard and there is a permanent interference when the hood is shut.

I think the splines on the arm might be damaged, and its not sliding far enough down on the shaft.

Could someone please check on their car to see how far up the wiper sits on the splines and if there are any exposed splines below? These pictures are taken with the nut tightened down.

iirc the wiper arm doesn't slide down all the way onto the splines. I remember being surprised by this. I had to have the wiper arm slightly more vertical then I would like to have had it for the hood to shut without inference.
