How far should the rear wiper sweep?

This may sound like a silly question, but how far should the rear wiper sweep? Mine only sweeps about 120deg. Should is go all the way across?

TIA

No, mine only sweeps ~120, maybe more, but it does not go 180

That sounds about right. It doesn't go all the way across. Stock XJ rear wiper size is 13", but my 2000 had a 14" wiper on it when I first got it and covered a little bigger area.

Re: How far should the rear wiper sweep?

Thanks guys. I was assuming mine wasn't working right. It seems odd that it doesn't make the full sweep though. My wife's WJ does. Between the tire on the back and the ~120deg sweep I'm pretty blind back there when it's snowing.

As long as mine sweeps the corners where the dust bunnies collect I am happy. I believe mine is a little less than 120 degrees.
