    Hi all, my rear wiper stops just off the window and has started to mark the paintwork. Is it easy to adjust it or is it a pig to do? Do I need a puller to do the job?

    Thanks in advance

    I think if you slacken the nut a few turns, lift the wiper arm to the vertical position then waggle it off the splines, you should be able to reposition it.
    Unless it's just worn out......

    You need a new wiper motor mate, I expect you have excess play in it due to the seals gone inside it from the washer fluid. The motors are revised now. If you take the panel off the inside of the tailgate you may even find a brown stain where it's leaking.

    You will need a puller to get the arm off though...
