Fixing sweep on wiper blades

With the rough winters in New York and constant use, all of a sudden the driver side wiper blade is hitting the A-Pilar when in use. Replacing the wiper blades (22 Driver, 21 Passenger) with both OEM and Bosch Icons have not alleviated the issue. Anyone experience this issue or know of a solution.

Re: Fixing sweep on wiper blades

Arm might be loose... Probably mounted on a splinded knob. I fixed it easily on a prior vehicle but not on a Jeep. There was a nut holding it on under the wiper arm. Probably slipped one notch due to heavy snow on windshield. Despite what dealer says, wiper mechanism is not built to clear heavy accumulated snow. Sorry I could not be more helpful. Someone else will add here.
