    Hi, I'm new to this so please excuse me if I have made any mistakes with the thread title etc.

    I have a 2004 318Ci and ever since I got the car a few months ago, there has been a problem with the drivers side wiper arm.

    The wipers that are on are the Bosch Super Plus ones 23/20s; the oem ones.

    The problem is that when the wipers are on the driver side, on the upstroke, hits the side of the windscreen. I have checked that it is tight, it is. They are in the right position as I compared it with my friends and several others, it is in the same position as them.

    What I have noticed it that when you lift the arm from the windscreen, it moves about an inch each way and is just generally loose. Whereas, the passenger side is tight and doesn't move. I have been told that it is not the wiper motor or anything but i just want to know how I can stop it from hitting because it is really annoying!

    Thanks everyone.
