    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.

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