    Drivers side wiper hitting A post W126

    The drivers side wiper is hitting the rubber seal between the windscreen and the A post on my S Class. I have moved it back a few notches on the motor splines but it is still doing it. It gets annoying after a while :wallbash: Does anyone have any info or tips to help cure this? Thanks, Stu
