Does anyone else have this problem?

When I have the windshield wipers on high, the passenger side wiper hits the windshield frame.

I really never use the wipers on high, but it's inevitable at times when I'm using the rain sensor.

The wipers look fine when at rest, so I don't want to adjust the wiper a bit.

Any thoughts?

I feel that prolonged hitting will probably mark up the windshield moulding or the wiper/arm.

Someone did post about such an issue a couple of months ago. The bottom line is that it is under warranty: just tell your Dealer.

I had this happen on the drivers side a few times once, it hasn't happened again...but if it does I'll get out of the car and observe it...I have tried to replicate it at home with a hose on shower and nothing hit...I think it has something to do with the wind assisting the collision of the blade/frame.

Mine did this as well. Just took it in to the shop and they adjusted it. They were nice enough to wash the car as well, and plug a tire that had a nail in it at the same time. No charge.

But i live only a few miles from the dealer. You might be able to get them to tell you how to adjust it if you live far away.

Thanks folks.

I need to take it to the dealer anyway because my roller shade needs to be replaced, too.

Mine did it this morning - heavy rain and 70mph. Slowed down and it stopped. Maybe its a safety feature yet to be advertised.:)
