I have been outside of the car and turned them on, but they do not even come close to touching the pillar. The movement is smooth.
Does anyone else have this problem? the sound is very annoying.
This cannot be normal operation.
I see this is an older thread, So I'm going to try and revive it. I was riding in my buddy's WK 06 earlier tonight and it was raining, so every time the wipers were in the up position, we would hear what you're describing. It just made a single tap sound, try to picture it as if someone with longer finger nails tapped the windshield once every time the wipers came up to the top.
We pulled the wipers arms back then turned the wipers on without them actually touching the windshield, and the noise is still there. Sounds like it is near the wiper motor area. Either way, it was annoying. Has anyone ever dealt with this? or have an idea what's going on?
