Will certainly consider the trip. Only big issue I see delaying the whole project is getting the flywheel resurfaced. Local machinist said he's so backed up it would take 3 weeks for him to get to it once I brought it to him.
Damn, we dropped off my cousin's before doing the manual swap on his car and the machinist had it done by the next day!

Tiny project I need to get to because I find it endlessly annoying: My driver's side wiper has jumped splines or something and gone out of sync, causing it to sit higher than it should when parked and it annoyingly hits the A pillar molding every wipe. I've tried to find some posts on this but didn't turn up much. I'm assuming I have to pry that dust cap off somehow and there's a bolt underneath, but I can't seam to get the cap off? Are these splined wipers, or are they just friction mounted via tension from the nut? Once I get the nut off, will I have to pull the wiper off to reposition it, or, if it's a friction mount, do I just have to loosen the nut and reposition the wiper?

It’s a lot easier making a sharpie reference mark to work from on this job.

Cap pops off.

M6 bolt

Index mark

Pull arm off and move

Grease splines

Relighten m6, not too tight

Pop,cap back in.

Just to add detail: the cap is lifted at the round edge and pivots at the wiper end. Then the cap lifts off. If your splines seem completely smooth, you could add a drop of thread lock or super glue to the spline surface.
