Hi I have asked with a different problem before and been helped so thank you.

1. Peugeot boxer 2.2 hdi 2005 auto cruise Starfire windscreen wiper in the fully up open position on the drivers side in a heavy down poor at speed say 60mph sometimes the wiper arm goes just past the edge of the screen at the middle of the wiper blade arm I have changed left with the right and the same thing happens it does not always happen.
History:- once before the wipers packed in I got home only local and took the motor out and did a repair in the motor but ordered a second hand unit as a spare in case of failure up in Scotland 5 min to change.
I had worked in maintenance all my life.
When this problem happened I changed the motor and the fault still occurred.
Anybody had to change the mech arm or bushes etc is this the problem?

I had a similar problem with my previous van and the solution Brian was to buy a small puller and carefully take the arms off the splined rods and reposition them about two inches back from where they were and retighten carefully ,(y)

Yep sounds like the rack linkages are worn and needs replacing. if it was an arm position issue, then it would happen every time you use the wipers

Would appear to be wiper linkage worn (including the splines where the wiper arms fit) as noted previously. 14 years old a new motor will not "cure" that. I would fit new linkage for reliability.

It's easy to test for slack. If you lift the arm clear of the screen there should be zero play tested by rocking the arm in each direction. There should be a small amount of 'spring' but no slack at all. If there is you'll be able to find out where it is whilst rocking the arm.
