Q: Rear wiper not working on 2005 Honda Odyssey

The rear wiper was working great, stopped and when restarted it was hanging straight down. Tried ro readjust but it would either hang straight down or wipe 1/4 of the window and then the the car body itself. My wife has the car now so I haven't checked to see if the nut is just loose but wondered if there might be any other solutions for this problem.

The arm is covered by a platic cover that snaps off and then there is a bolt that need removed to pull the arm off. It is probably stripped and the arm needs to be replaced. It is a dealer part for under $20.00.
Yep, I checked that out and it definitely was loose. We havent' had much need for the wiper so it has slipped my mind and I haven't fixed it yet. Must do that soon! Thanks for the response.
