Hey people,

Just fitted a new D-side wiper arm to the 5 Series and it the wiper is missing a spot and leaves a streak right in my eye line.

With the broken arm it didn't even do this so I'm imagining there is something to adjust.

The blades are Bosch aero's. ( Not old at all )

It's in the middle of the blade so I'm thinking there must be some order to install the new arm before tightening. I've searched the net but didn't find much that helped.

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like the blade is bent or it has an odd wear pattern from when it was working with the broken arm. Check you've got the blade locked in correctly first then maybe try another blade.

I got one off Ebay for about £30. It is actually better put together than the original. The bearings appear to be much higher standard. Time will tell of course.
