Default Bloody wipers

I'm sure you all know what I mean....
Those french and their left sided ways......couple that with those thingy arm wipers that wipe from the middle.

The drivers window doesn't get wiped as much as the other side Big gap next to the A-Frame.


Can I just re-adjust the wipers 'swapping' them over in their parked positions.
So the right wipes first and returns last?

I have a 308 & find the wipers near on perfect. When you get as old as me & have driven some of the crap I have , everything from 1960 's Caddillac Eldorados to 1990's Leyland National buses ....you'll find there is nothing wrong with Peugeot wipers!!

I've never thought it a problem either.
Just keep the bloody windscreen clean.

It's not that...it's when it's raining, the wiper doesn't reach all the way to the side, and it's annoying me.

The left side gets cleaned nicely..The right has a good few inches of uncleared window, and in the rain it's quite a bit of a blind spot

Nowt wrong with 1990's Leyland National buses.
Used to be a bus driver myself...1960 Atlanteans with air operated wipers....Now *they* were rubbish. Frequently had to get out and wipe the window myself

Something doesn't sound quite right there.

I have a 307 XSI hdi 136 and both wipers go to within 15mm of the edges of the screen on both sides. My 307 XSi petrol prior did the same.

The only thing that I can say is the drivers wiper is slightly shorter so doesn't go quite as far as the passenger side, but its well out of the field of vision. Maybe yours need taking off the pivot and re adjusting

That's one thing I did find - they were bloody tight and corroded on the pivots, once I cleaned the corrosion I put a bit of copper slip on - job done

I agree, mine go all the way to the edge also.

Hey Bod, you had those crap airwipers too, mine were on AEC mercury and Mandator went their own speed at best, normally fast in drizzle and nearly stopped in a downpour

I remember my old Ford Prefect had Vacuum wipers ---the faster you drove , the slower the wipers went . Used to also drive Leyland Olympians & Atlanteans --fortunately they had electric wipers --but the cab heaters never worked . Brrrrrrrrrr.

youngsters these days never had it so good. There were some harsh vehicles about for us guys to use. And no it was after the war!!! Oh nearly forgot the thread, cant say 100% cos not worked on my wipers yet but surely you must be able to move them a notch or two on the shafts
