The last update makes my wipers go all the way down, rather than staying up on window. This makes the blades rub terribly on the plastic surrounding the windshield base. I think this would be great in winter as it would scrape off ice buildup, but sucks during rain.

Anyone else notice this with latest update?

No, mine remain on the glass. Strange that yours would change.

I’m on 2019.20.4.2 and have not experienced that and we’ve seen a lot of rain this past weekend

Clarify, 'all the way down' as in 'below the hood for aerodynamics' or 'literally off the windshield'? If riding up on the plastic regularly then it's calibrated incorrectly.

Mine's always retracted below the lip of the hood for aero when not in use. I have noticed once where it only went halfway between 'up idle' and 'stowed'. The next time I powered the car it went back down all the way to 'stowed'.

When the wipers are on, they go down to the stowed location every swipe.

It does look like maybe calibration needed? They do go very slightly lower in stowed position. I am fairly certain it use to be obvious.

I have noticed that for the past couple of month intermittently. They sometimes work fine and sometimes squeak. Often they start squeaking after working for awhile and I've had it stop too. I thought it was the blade not flipping back nd forth properly
