....and if you are worried about hitting the bonnet lip with the arm, put a bit of sponge or a folded cloth between them to stop any problems.

An update
I went the insurance route.
Screen replaced by Autoglass for a £75 glass excess.
The insurance company (AXA) say it will have no effect on my premium or NCD.
I had a word with my dealer, and they say they don't use the service position when replacing wiper blades, because of this problem.
They change wiper blades in the rest position.

After reading about changing them in the rest position it seems easier that way.
180 diesel XE R Sport, with many extras :D
