Default Wiper blades on the windshield.

This may sound like a cheezy whine, but my wipers miss the lower passenger side of the windshield. I replaced the wipers a few times and even the windshield (it was cracked, replacing it because the wipers miss would be stupid!), and it'* still the same. Is this a problem on other cars or just my little money pit?

I just recently have this after I replaced the wiper blades with NAPA ones.

Never had this problem before.

Do they pass over it, or does it miss it in the arc?

Same here. It must be a Bonneville thing.

Ithe shape of the windshield. I can't remember right off if mine miss or not, but you'd have to have pretty springy blades to make it conform.

OR, you're running blades that are slightly too long
