Im not sure if my wiper linkage needs adjusting or if this is how they are designed. The passenger side wiper sits very close to the drivers side wiper, almost touching. Today when cleaning the windscreen i noticed as i lifted the wiper arms up that they actually touch the bonnet? Is this normal? If they need adjusting how?

How can the wipers be lifted without hitting the edge of the bonnet?

Remember im in the uk if that makes any difference.

Thanks

On my '07, you actuate the wipers after turning off the motor and the wipers will take about a half sweep and then stop (I think that is the sequence but it may be slightly different - see your Owner's Manual). You can then change wiper blades etc.

Mine does the same. I think it's normal.
