Fixed my rear wiper

The rear window wiper used to skip over the top half of the window on my ZX3. I tried a new wiper blade with the same result. Then I noticed that the arm was kind of low and was almost rubbing on the bottom edge of the wiper. I bent the wiper arm a little more with a crescent wrench. It was hard to bend by hand and I didn't want to break it. Don't bend it too much, a little is all it needs. Now the arm clears the lower edge of the wiper by about 1/8" and it cleans the top of the window every time.
