      Drivers side windshield wiper banging on left side of windshield.

      Recently the drivers side wiper blade on my car has been banging into the side of the windshield. It seems like they are randomly going to far to the left. It still looks like they go all the way down to the right. It doesn't do it every time about 1 out of 10 swipes. Any suggestions ? This is on an 05 AWD.
      Thanks Greg

      Mine does this occasionally too. I just figured it was because I put a 2" longer blade than recommended, the size that was previously on the car didn't cover enough surface.

      Maybe our cars' wiper motors just get a little too excited?

      Same issue here too... every 5-10 swipes. Pretty annoying. Noticed it a month or so before I replaced the blades (with oem). Seems like it happens mostly on the freeway. I'm thinking it could be the wind force combined with slightly worn parts?

      Buy a new wiper 1" shorter.
