Driver side wiper arm is hitting the A pillar

Postby Brewcity1 » Sun Feb 09, 2020 3:59 pm

Hello all,

It’s snowing pretty good today in Wisco...and I noticed that my driver side wiper blade is hitting the A pillar and making all kinds of noise. Not something I would expect from an Infiniti. : (
I searched the forum, and found that someone loosened the bolt, and put the wiper lower. I tried that...but after a couple swipes...the wiper went right back to where it was, and is still hitting the A pillar and making a ton of noise.

Does anyone have a fix for this so I don’t have to take it to a dealer?
Thanks so much for the help. :dblthumb:

Try retightening again, this time using some locktight.
If that doesn't work there's a chance you may have stripped the threads, in which case please post a picture of the bolt and the bolt holes.

Thank you for the help.
I will grab some locktight on my way home tomorrow and report back.

Hello...well, I tried to re-tighten everything ...and got the same results. :gotme
My threads are fine, as I checked that to make sure. I will post a picture of my bolt.

Does anyone else have an idea about what to do...or has solved this problem?
Is this a common issue with the M model?

Maybe loose on the motor side?

May have misdiagnosed the issue. This is for the g35 but same principal.

Hello again all...does anyone know if the G35 parts for the short and long arms (Part# INF 28842-AL500 and INF 28841-AL500) listed in the link above is the same for the M35?
I just want to make sure the parts are correct before taking everything off, and replacing the arms.

Thanks for the clarification.

Just a quick update:

I spoke with Infiniti of Naperville, IL...and the parts guy there said " the M linkages do not come separate from the entire motor assembly"
They want $575 for the entire assembly! See here:

Does anyone know if this is indeed true or not?
I cannot believe this is the case.

Thanks so much!
