Rear wiper doesn't press against glass
I cleared some ice off the rear wiper on my '99 Cherokee and all of a sudden it doesn't press on the glass. The washer works and the wiper blade moves, but suddenly it doesn't press on the glass - so it won't clean anything.
When I was cleaning the ice off I thought I saw something fall off the wiper, but I couldn't find anything on the ground other than ice fragments.
I've tried lubing the pivot points, but the darn wiper just won't press against the glass. A search of this forum didn't reveal any similar reports.
Any ideas or experience with this problem? Thanks...
