    Default loose rear wiper arm

    basically, although the actual fixing is solid, i half about an 1" and a half of movement at the end of the wiper, it wipes the screen fine, but comes to rest slightly on the paintwork of the boot under the window.
    i know i can undo the nut and move it upwards a bit, but would rather fix the problem that disguise it.

    is this a common problem, is there an easy fix, or would the whole motor mechanism need changing?

    Mine's like that too - the bit fixed to the motor shaft it solid, but the arm on the other side of the joint is loose. The joint is just plastic, so I suspect it's simply a case of the plastic wearing and allowing sideways movement.

    Probably the only real fix is a new arm. But you might be able to recondition the joint somehow so it's got less sideways movement.
