Question type: General

The wiper motor went out and had it replaced.  Also wiper arms replaced.  Now the wiper on the drivers side doesn't touch the windshield in the middle.  How can this be fixed.

Check the blade and make sure it moves easily in the holder and pivots on the arm. If it all looks good then you probably need new blades.

Swap the two arms because one may reach further and longer then the other one which sits on the windshield at a different angle for a different range. They may look identical but one goes over the middle of the glass from the down position and the other goes to the side of the curved windshield from the down position. It is how they end up or where each one ends up on the curved glass that you may have backwards. Try it and let us know what happened!
