Default 06 STi wiper problem

Driverside windshield wiper is makeing a click when it moves all the way to the left.

It is like it is almost sticking to the fram of the windshield. Is there a way to adjust the arm so I could keep it off the frame to avoid this VERY aggravating clicking noise?

Yep, Mine too. They should be able to go to a dealer to fix it. But it pisses me off too!

you should be able to adjust the wipers by popping off the plug that hides the screw that holds the wiper arm to the motor. Once you loosen the nut just try to pull up on the wiper and move it. When you pull up on the wiper you basically move it up from the teeth thats holding it in. When you adjust it to the desired position you can push it back into place, tighten the nut and you are done. I did it with my 06 when the wipers sat too high. It was very annoying.

well this has gotten so bad I have just about stopped using my wipers. The noise makes me so mad now.

after a rainy weekend at the dragon I have to get this fixed. So you guys are saying that this will coverable by my warranty? If so I am going straight down to the subaru dealership tomorrow and getting the problem fixed.

Hopefully they can figure it out in little time.

I just got done doing this and it took me no more than 10 min, problem seems to be solved. I really think it is solved cause I think it was kinda catching on the rubber portion of the edge of the windshield at times, now I have it set about an inch away and no problems yet.

Thanks for the tip!

Mine does this as well. It doesn't appear to be hitting anything on my car. From what I have seen, when the wiper starts moving back down, the blade sticks a bit, so the wiper assembly itself clicks against the windshield before the blade starts to move. I have only experienced this when the wipers are on the faster settings. Mine is an 05 sti.

I replaced the wiper rubber only with Trico part # 45-220 since they needed to be replaced anyway and the clicking is gone now.

Mine seemed to be the same, i dont know why but moving it over only a couple of notches at the gear really made a difference. Now i dont dread driving when it rains because i dont have to listen to my wipers making that horrible noise.

Same issue on my 07 WRX Ltd Wagon. It is not coming from the blades themselves, but from a something under the dash. Timed to the movement of my wipers. Really effing annoying.

I've got this same problem. I've got the reflect wipers though, and it's definately coming from the blade. It occurs as soon as the wiper blade switches directions and bents/folds the rubber from one way to the other.

I think it's due to dry wipers, try a new one and see ! I've gotta do it also.. it's really ANNOYING.
