I would adjust the LHS wiper as low as possible to avoid the wipers clashing. When that happens it frightens the living daylights out of you and can wreck the wipers.

    Agreed, first time it happened with the old wipers I thought they were going to snap off.

    Struggling to adjust them myself, nut is crazy tight so will leave alone and hope the lack of drag from the AeroTwins means they wont need it.

    If your windscreen wipers are colliding, remove the passenger side wiper arm and reset it one or two splines lower down the windscreen than the previous setting, making sure that it is not contacting with trim at bottom of screen when parked.

    This will increase the clearance between the wipers, and "time" them correctly.

    Just ordered a socket set so I can do this, but they are fine as they are at the moment :)

    There are markings on the screen for blade alignment.

    Yes, seen those, but where are they supposed to sit in relation to them, on or above?

    Mine are ever so slightly above but the Aerotwins seem to have cured the issue.

    Highly recommended.
