    Default windscreen wipers

    Had a problem yesterday, driving along M55 - a gust of wind forced the wipers up the screen. now they are stuck in that position.

    I believe i can remove the arms are move back to the original position?

    Can someone give me more info on removing them, thanks

    Qusetion 1, do they still move when you use the wipers..if no then you need to read the how-2 on wiper racks..

    if they still move, but need re-aligning, then it's easy..

    you will need 1 small screwdriver, a 13mm socket and ratchet, and either a small pulley or 2 large screwdrivers to lever the arm up..

    open the bonnet, on the 2 arm spindles are 2 plastic caps, remove these with the small screwdriver..

    undo the 13mm nut, it will be tight, and remove.

    now you either use the puller, or the 2 screwdrivers ( one either side of the spindle) and pull the arm up off the spindle.. it may well be tight but it will come off with a 'pop'.

    now, just re-align the wiper arm to the position you want it to lay at an replace the 13mm nut and just 'pinch' it for now.

    now re-align the other side..

    when happy with how they lay, fully tighten the 2 nuts and replace the covers..close he bonnet and test their operation by washing the screen and just check they don't come up as high as to tap the drivers side pillar of the windscreen.. they need to stop about 40mm from the pillar..
