    Hi,

    just wanted to hear opinions on this wear.
    Seems the wiper arm is bending to far upwards and scraping the hood as it passes.

    Any known remedies?
    Only other mention of this i can find is two years back in this section of the forum.

    Regards

    make sure the wipers are adjusted correctly. There is a mark on the windshield as to where the wiper should be set. We discovered one of ours was too low when on our first trip and our first rain. The service center sent out a roving mechanic to adjust it.
