Rear windshield wiper turned on 6/3/2016 to clear morning fog condensation. Water squirted but blades did not move. Examined more carefully and found that when wiper off ,it drops to park on the body of the tailgate. When on, it gets stuck on the bottom lip of the window, needs to be lifted manually to be in place to function. Car has 55000 miles on it.
