rear wiper wont wipe the whole way

ever since i got my car the rear wiper only actually wipes with the bottom half of it and the top never touches the glass. has the same size rear wipe as my two friends with the same style and theres wipe fine. there are even scratches from the bottom being pushed down into the glass from the previous owner.. anyone have had this problem and know a fix?

Try a different brand wiper blade. I had the same thing happen to me. The one I put on didn't curve enough to fit the contour of the window. Try another brand, and hopefully it will flex enough to work right then.

Carry on!
