V70 wiper adjustment?

The driver's side wiper on my V70 (2002) stops about two inches before
the left edge of the windshield. Can the wiper be adjusted to provide
better coverage?

You can move the arm round a little on its spindle (slacken the nut, and
re-tighten it after adjustment) but you can't increase the overall travel -
so what you gain one end, you'll lose the other end.

If you look closely at the factory glass you will see a white dot near
the center of each wiper blade when they are parked. This is the
alignment mark for the blade when they are installed. If the arm parks
so the the blade rests directly over the dot then the wiper arm travel
will be correct.
