Can you explain that a bit more, I don't understand the problem? Because they are a V designed sweep rather then the traditional one side sweep they should wipe to the same position on both sides?

I have noticed a similar problem on my 05 galaxy. At park the n/s sits above the o/s so the passenger one sweeps right to the A pillar where as the drivers stops a couple of inches short. I have noticed on the early MKII its the other way round so the o/s sweeps right to the A pillar . I can only assume the early cars had a different linkage for left and right hand drive.

Mines the same Fonz,  you would have thought after all the years the car was produced they could have got rid of the unwiped few inches where the driver needs it most
The mk 2 is better than the mk 1 though with the curved blades.
