I have checked the wipers many times and they are tight and not slipping on the spindle. When at Goshen they changed the wiper arm and reset the height to the spec. In a heavy rain and driving the left wiper on occasion still goes beyond the windshield. Using the RAINX limits the amount of having to use the wipers in heavy rain. Something we will have to live with as the momentum of the arm swinging causes it to go past the stop. I believe there is just too much slop in arm mechanism.

Very likely too much slop, like you say. One more safety related issue that a good number of Legacy owners are encountering and FR doesn't seem too concerned over. Good luck and drive safe.

I managed to remove the wiper arm from the spline today (didn't come off very easy) and clocked it down a little...I think this will work and not go around the corner now.

Some have started to use smaller blades. I would think that would help.

I did this today after a wiper failure in the rain on 95.
Adjusting them was easy, took all of five minutes to mark the current position, pop off the arm with a screwdriver for leverage and turn down putting the wipers about even across the windshield.
