You may have had the wrong size wiper arm and/or blade recently installed. They can be different from side to side. Please check the correct wiper blade length with a part finder at your local parts store.

try taking the whole wiper assembly off the threaded portion of the motor then put it back on where you want them to be at resting position on the threads then turn wipers on and make sure they still travel far enough to work to their fullest if not then its a bad wiper motor

Windshield wipers travel past the driver side window:


There is a tool for that, to take the spring tension off the arm

You can still wrestle it off, by lifting the arm off windshield
& on the arms right side & under it ,is a small tab you slide
out.

Then the arm comes off & you can reinstall in a different place

Driver's side windshield wiper goes past window frame. How can this be repaired?


It could be a relatively easy fix or it could take some effort. First, try repositioning the wiper. By flipping up the end cap of the wiper arm and backing off the set screw that holds it on the wiper motor post. Remember, what position it was in by placing a piece of tape on the windshield. Pull the wiper arm off by pulling it off in line ith the angle of the wiper motor post. Take a close look at the splines of both the wiper blade arm and wiper motor. If either is damaged you will have to replace that component. Estimate the amount of adjustment you need and reinstall the wiper blade arm that amount in relationship to the piece of tape. Tighten set screw and try it.
If it still does it but less then repeat the process until you get it adjusted correctly. If there was no change thing it could be the wiper motor and that takes some effort to replace.

Windshield wipers travel way to far on our 2001 subaru outback stationwagon. How do I shorten up the travel ?


I have the same problem with a 2001 Legacy wagon. The problem is not as simple as the solutions above. Mine are adjusted to park as low as possible when turned off. Even so, the blade on the drivers side goes all the way off the windshield. The Subaru dealer wants to replace the whole wiper blade transmission for about $450. Looking online it seems to be interconnecting arms and pivot points that connect the motor to the wiper blade arms.

When I turn on the windshield wipers they travel too far hitting the windshild pillar(top) and the the cowl(bottom).


The wipers are not installed correctly. Remove and reposition the wiper arms ,so they do not hit the side of the outside window pillar,when set to high speed.
