    Hi.
    The rear wiper blade on my A3 doesn't clear the entire rear window and always leaves streaks.
    When I have looked at the wiper itself, sometimes a quarter of it isn't touching the window.
    Is this a problem with the arm or would a new blade sort it?

    Additionally, I am always having to stick a pin in the rear washer as after a few weeks that starts to clog up.

    Try using the washers more often, so dislodging dirt build up. Also lubricant the arm's pivot point.

    Mine is exactly the same, was actually like that when I bought it but just haven't bothered getting a new one because it clears enough for me to see what's behind me. It's a bit of a pain when your car is a little dirty cause it just smears dirt everywhere lol

    My washers are the same actually, they've clogged up completely and again I haven't bothered to clear them yet, maybe I'll do it tomorrow if the weather isn't apocalyptic
