RESPONSE

Rear Wiper Arm

First thing to look at would be the mounting of the rear window wiper arm also since it is easy to get to. There is a retaining nut on arm that at times may come loose and need to be tightened.  If the retaining nut is found secure the next step would be to replace the rear wiper motor assembly.
