Windshield wiper off position

How can I adjust the off position of the wiper? It goes over that plastic cover and sometimes it even goes lower.

Do I take off the wiper arm bolts and then re tighten them where I want the off position to be?

There is a serrated cone washer under the nut under the cover. Try changing it one serration at a time. The torque spec is stamped right on the cone or the nut.
