    Default Driver side wiper stops at ~70 degrees

    Hello, i have this problem:
    My driver's side windscreen wiper doesn't slide to the 90 degree position, but stops somewhere at 70 degrees. This really annoys me in the rainy days. Is it something with me wiper motor? I really hope i can fix it by myself.

    My car is 2003 Signum v6 3.0dti.
    Here's the picture how it looks like when it's on it's top position:

    how about undoing the 13mm nut at the bottom of the arm and moving it up a little, mine was also like that and it hit the other wiper at the bottom when going fast

    Could a few others please confirm if the wiper is supposed to wipe all the way to the edge (ie at the 90 degree angle).

    My Vectra also stops at the 70 degree angle (which i thought was a bit daft) - i was assuming they were all like that??

    Mine wipes right back to the vertical point, and maybe a fraction over vertical but only a touch.

    I assume they still use a splined shaft so its unlikely to have moved on the shaft.

    Mine wipes to vertical too. Sounds like a wiper linkage issue to me.
