I know this may be a dumb question, but when I bought my X, the wiper blades were 18" on driver side and 24" on passenger side. Just had the X in for an oil change and the nissan tech noticed that they were "on the wrong sides". Bigger, he said, should be on the driver side and vise versa. Funny thing is, when he reversed them, they hit each other and wouldn't work properly.

It seems to wipe just fine and seems to cover the entire windshield. Anyone else have the smaller blade on the driver side?

Odd, my '06 S has 17 3/4 inch. passenger side wipers and the driver side has 23 3/4 inch. driverside wipers. Stock, never changed. However, the passenger side wiper arm is about two inches longer than the driverside arm. So if they put them on the wrong side at the factory then it would explain why they are hitting when you swappped the wipers out.
