    Rear Wiper Not Sitting Properly

    Not sure if anyone has had this problem but the two ends of my rear wiper don't sit flat against the window





    I've tried re-adjusting the wiper several times but to no avail; is it a replacement wiper arm job?

    Thanks

    Probably, there is a plastic "rod" where the spring connects to which can break over time. I replaced it on my old A3 before removing the whole wiper entirely.

    My advice is to remove it completely as the car looks a lot better with out it. If you want to keep the rear wiper, then it isn't an expensive repair and it's easy to do.

    Thought that might be the case

    It may look better but given I do silly mileage and the recent monsoon conditions its staying!! Lol
