Hello.
just noticed that the front wiper blades run off the side of the window, hitting the A pillar.

can these be easily adjusted?

cheers

Judging by your signature is your motor still under Warranty, if so get it back to dealer sort out, it may be slack in wiper assembly.

Check you have the right length blades. Is it drivers or passenger side that's hitting?

Maybe not sitting right or loose on the spline. Can you “wiggle” it when it’s parked?

I haven’t checked to be honest. Will have a look later.

I guess it’s pretty easy to tighten if it loose?

If it is loose it’s best not to just tighten it. You need to take the nut off, remove the arm and scrape out the soft metal from the wiper spindle splines so when you put it back together the splines will grip the arm properly. Small screwdriver or anything with a point on will do.
