    Is there a way to adjust the wiper swing? My driver's side wiper has started to go to far left and started to 'click' on the edge of the windshield everytime and it's beyond annoying in the rain!

    The wiper arm clamps onto the motor shaft with an bolt on the under side that can get loose.

    You should be able to loosen it, adjust the position, then tighten it back down.

    I was having the same annoying problem with my LR4 wipers. My simple solution was to replace the existing left wiper blade with one an inch shorter. The annoying clicking is gone and I haven't noticed any perceptible difference in the area swept by the wipers.

    I have a 2010 with 140k and I was having the dreaded wiper clack on swing all the way to the left. I bought new arms from Eric R at Atlantic British and problem solved and the new arm springs ensure I get a much cleaner wipe.

    This↑. Been there and done it. 5-minute job. You'll need a small flathead screwdriver to pop the covers off the bolts. I'm sorry, I forget what size socket you'll need. But it's an easy fix.
