Wiper Hits Side of Window

Has anyone experienced the passenger side window wiper hitting the windshield frame?

My stock wipers seem to have "grown" and now hit. I just tried some after market (RainX) wipers and they are even longer.

Any ideas?

Same problem. Have not discovered the solution. Dealer was unable to fix.

After my air filter fix, where the tech had to remove the wipers to put in the new gasket, etc, they mis-installed the wiper so they all of a sudden slammed into the bottom tray on each cycle. I presume this was because the ignition was turned off while wipers were still in motion, not a rest and not in down position. I would suggest you have wipers in down rest position, loosen the locking bolt at the base of the appropriate wiper assembly, adjust the blade to a reasonable bottom location, and tighten back up. See if they then cycle where expected. Otherwise, I would have no clue.
