147 GTA Rear wiper arm

Hi this sounds like a total noob question but is there any way to adjust the rear wiper arm on 147?

I've put it back again and it slightly touches the upper plastic spoiler, I guess it has to be few millimeters away.

Thanks

Is it the correct arm?

Most factory glass (front and rear) has a small dot or circle where the tip of the arm points when "parked". Is the wiper correctly aligned thus?

Is it the same item that you took off, or have you replaced the wiper arm? My reason for asking is that the arms on a standard 147 are too long to fit a GTA because of the roof spoiler. The GTA arm is a stand alone item, or you can simply use a wiper refill cut to size which is what I do.

it is the same arm that was installed before, could be that it was touching before but I didn't notice,
Is there a way to check if my arm is the normal one or the GTA's?

You have the wrong wiper arm. Yours is for a standard 147 without the spoiler.

You need this:

Thanks! apparently the previous owner had installed the regular rear wiper which is 500mm long instead of the GTA's shorter 480mm
