    My passenger side windshield wiper hits the plastic cowl when it comes down. The arm is not splined so I cannot just rotate it up. The wiper arm has a "D" shaped connection. Anyone else with this problem? How'd you fix it.

    the arm is splined inside.. there is a tab on the bottom of the ball of the arm, pull it and pry the arm off of the splined knob is sits on and raise it up a few splines.

    Mine is not splined. The socket of the arm is "D" shaped. All of the other Ford stuff I hav worked on is splined, but this one is not. Maybe it is only the 95's that are. I have found other stuff that only pertains to 95 models since it was the first year for gen 2.

    Barry,
    I think Four0Sport was referring to inside the cab, under the cowl. The linkage should have a splined pivot where you can make an adjustment.
