FORD EDGE WIPER FIX : by XtremePitbull

ok today i did some tinkering with the wiper and motor cause my ford edge wiper doesnt hit the top arc ...

heres the fix

take the hatch plastic off and it will expose the motor

theres 3 screws on the motor ... 1 at the bottom and 2 on top
well its upside down but heres a pic



the 2 that are circled are held on by sheet metal brackets that flex
push gently on these 2 and bend em towards the hatch and then experiment
go little by little

spray the window with water and turn the wiper on ... if it doesnt hit ... then push some more ... mine is PERFECT now ... all the time i spent ... 30 mins tinkering ... pays off ... HOPE THIS HELPS EVERYONE ....

Good idea. I've not had that problem, but I'm sure there are others who have.

Glad you got a fix for this! When I actually get an Edge wiper I'll keep this thread in mind!

im hoping that this fix works on all the hatches ... the mod looks so much better but i would hate to actually sacrifice the function of the wiper working ... anyone know how to get this like featured so EVERYONE will be sure to see?

Maybe it should be added to the "How-To" archive.
