Wiper Linkage Adjustment

Looking for a Wiper Linkage Adjustment Solution?

Wiper Linkage Adjustment

After dealing with what was thought to be a driver’s side wiper arm issue (common), the issue resulted in replacement of the entire wiper linkage or transmission (also known as the “frame.”). During the replacement process, there was huge confusion as to the proper alignment of the wiper linkage. Nowhere on the internet is there a proper description of how to align it, but I figured it out and so did a write-up with pictures of how to properly do this. If you did not make notes, mark the old linkage or take pictures, then you will need this information or your wiper blades will not work the way they need to work on your 850. I assume that first generation S/V/C70’s are the same but I’m not sure. Even if they aren’t, the information here could save you a ton of time and headaches.
