Had this problem for the past several years. I finally got tired of it and cleaned the wiper assembly thoroughly and used WD -40 on the spring and worked it in well. Wiper has been good as new now for the past 6 months. Just reapply WD-40 every month or so .
Rear wiper blade was not fully flush with the rear window. No solution found. Never able to fix. At 165,000 miles the rear windshield wiper ceased to function. Now looking to solve this problem.
