    My 2018 4R rear window wiper does not travel much on the drivers side. There is a plastic stop preventing further travel. Any fixes?

    Pattern looks exactly like mine.

    I never really tried to extend it further nor really cared to so I don’t know if the plastic stop is the limiting factor or if the motor stops and reversed before it.

    Hmm never really noticed how far the wiper traveled. But, I never use it. I don’t like the clean space on a dirty window. Little ocd I suppose.

    This bugs me and was one of the first things that I noticed.

    I solved the problem by putting my coonie's travel kennel back there on the driver's side. Now, can't see sh*t out that side.
