Window Wipers bent due to snow

    The snow/ice seems to have played around with my windows wipers.

    I've not used the car for a few days but it seems the windows wipers are not going back down correctly.

    From the drivers seat you shouldn't really see the window wiper arms but I can now. Looking from the outside of the car they look like they should come down about another inch.


    Has anyone seen this problem before and how I might fix it please.

    Its on my A4 TDI S-line 2006

    Many Thanks

    Try un-doing the nut on the wiper arms and moving them down an inch and then re-tighten.

    Hi

    How do you move them. I've removed the black cap covering the 16MM nut and then removed the 16MM nut.

    Now do I just move the wiper arm up/down or does it need pulling off because its got a toothed edge ? I can see what to do here.

    Many Thanks

    They will come off but can be pretty awkward! Soak it in WD40 for a while and just gently wiggle the wiper arm until it comes loose - In the past I have left the socket on the nut and undone it up until about three threads left and given it a few hammer blows to jar it free. They will come but just be super careful!!
