Hi guys,

The wipers on my falcon seem to be really high up the windscreen when they are not in use.

Can someone please tell me the method for adjusting them?

Cheers

Do they swipe to far when working??? If not i would say the contacts on the wiper motors might need a clean.Have you used them again to see if they return??Sometimes the wipers lock in the position when you turn the ign off before the wipers.

easy! just undue the cap that covers the nut.. undue the bolt... lift the wiper arm off (might have to rock the wiper arm to loosen it).. lift the wiper arm off and then slide back onto the bolt at the desired angle then retighten the nut.. -worked on my ef wipers.. :wink:

The wiper arms are marked 'P' and 'D', so you can't get them mixed up . :o
While you have them off, you can clean off that annoying corrosion around the pivot area.

How tight can you do it up?

Like if I do it up as tight as I can will that stop them from working correctly?

Cheers,

Dane

once the bolt tightens.. do another quater turn to half turn of the nut and that is plenty tight..
