How would you address this W-Wiper pivot point?

I am just getting started addressing some issues with my (new) 2002, 27C Sightseer. One of the first is are these two fixed points that are the base for the angle corrector (for lack of a better word)






I have not gone into the cabin to see what access there is, but I suspected that someone has already 'been there-done that'. I would appreciate any suggestions before I begin the usual process of looking for a larger hammer.

Thanks, Jim

You can adjust both stopping points either way by loosening the larger wiper arm nut about 2 turns then while pulling out on the arm at the shaft tap the nut with a small hammer. Move the wiper arm where you need it then re-tighten the nut and try the wipers. If it is working correctly gently snug the wiper arm nut while tapping slightly on the arm at the shaft to seat the wedged splines to eleminate it from seating more then slipping. Not a bad idea to check again after a short run. If the total travel is too much you will want to check the linkage pivot pionts for ware.

Jesse, Thanks. I figure there's a lot of potential adjustment. I'm going to yank the whole wiper system off and soda blast it before new paint. It's these nasty pivots that need to be replaced. Once I figure out how to remove them, I might see if there are some marine replacements/substitutes. Cheers.
