i noticed that mine does the same thing. however, i've also noticed that when i use the washers while driving on the highway, the washer fluid hits the windshield at just about the right level.

If you take a paperclip to the little metal nozzles - you can re-direct the spray. - Kris

If you don't feel like aiming them lower, you can just "blip" them to not shoot over the roof.

Do ours spin? MY friend in his Accord used to turn them sideways and shoot people in the face at lights. Not too smart, but pretty damn funny.

Not too smart, as your wipers are scraping away at a dry window.

Yeah I've noticed the same thing. I didn't want to use the washer when driving cuz the fluid gets everywhere so I used them at a stop and they go way high, but they're calibrated to take wind factor into consideration so they'll hit just the right spot when moving.

Well he probably had only one wiper, so you just need one nozzle pointed at the window.

errrr.. yeah..

you can aim that back nozzle on wagons, though...

I remember the first car I tried to adjust the nozzles on (Scirocco), I messed it up so bad they arched way over the roof and 20' beyond. Once they get old they're pretty hard to adjust minutely. Silly, but fun.

shouldn't they be aimed lower (than described) due to the fact that you want your wipers to be wet while running across the surface of the glass?

If dirt is all built up in the wiper "park" position, doesn't it seem logical to get that area wet/clean first?
