Put the window down:P but in all reality do your best to look out the windows and the front window only way to fix that would be to wipe it off I think?

Just pop the windshield wiper arm off and push it back on where you want it. There is a knob that the arm slides onto. The knob turns back and forth over about a 45 degree angle. Depending where that arm is at rest depends where that 45 degree swath will be wiping.

How exactly do you remove the wiper arm from the splined shaft? It appears there is some type of a tap that locks it into place, is this correct? I replaced my wiper blades last week, and the next day my entire passenger side wiper arm fell off while going down the road in the rain. After pulling over and walking back several hundred feet I finally found it and quickly put it back on. Unfortunately in my hurry to get it back on, I reinstalled it about 3-4 splines off. Thanks in advance.

You just pry the arm off the splined shaft... There is a pin hole that you can slide a paperclip into when the wiper is pulled back away from the windshield that can help you take it off because it holds the spring pressure back. Otherwise just pry it off and watch your paint job...

Awesome! Thanks! (BTW, my post should have read "tab that holds it on" not tap....stupid phone "auto correct") Thanks again!
