On my Picasso desire2 1.6 2005 model . Had a sill replaced on the drivers side so had to disconnect the battery. After reconnecting the battery the wipers no longer go to the full sweep they did before, missing about 1 1/2 inch from where it used to go to. Checked the resting point marks on the screen and they don't match either. No other electrical problems that i can see. Any suggestions please. Thanks

So are the wipers at rest beyond the marks or short of the marks. If beyond and short at the top then the sweep Sector has moved. Strange that it happened when the battery was disconnected. If beyond and shy then tepodton the arms on the spindles. If shy at both ends then don't have an answer

The mark on the screen, one wiper seems about an inch higher than the mark and the other is above the mark by roughly the same. The windscreen wipers now clean about an inch and a half less than they used to on each side. We changed wipers a month ago and i'm certain they are the right ones.
