Windshield Wipers

So my windshield wipers are down to far and when I turn them on they don't go all the way in front of my face and when they are off the passenger side one is somewhat off the windshield.. how can I move them to the correct spot?

I have the same problem, I have to have them almost straight up and down to cover a good portion of the driver side, if I center them at 2200, they travel off the passenger side of the windshield and do not travel across drivers view.

It is really easy. There is a small hole about the size of a pencil lead on the arm about one inch from the shaft, lift the arm about an inch or so and insert a small wire or nail,this will take the tension off and hold the wiper away from the windshield. Now use a screw driver as spunebil said and pry them away from the shaft and reinstall them where you want them to rest. Use a piece of cardboard to protect your paint.

Mine, as pictured a few posts ago, are at 2200 and sweep to about 1400 , clearing widershield in front of me main vision "port"

Course if you reverse this "timing" I have no idea what they would do lpl

Like everything else " automotive " right side is as you stand in front looking at jeep!

IE, the right bank of pistons in a V 8 is on drivers side

Alright I guess I'll give it a shot tomorrow.

I had problems with mine going too far in both directions. The point they went to was also sporadic (2200 one time, 2100 the next, etc). If they aren't going to the same point consistently, let me know, and I'll try to explain my fix.

That is backwards, right and left are sitting in the vehicle facing forwards. Drivers side is left, passenger side is right(unless you're in a right hand drive).
