I recently purchased a 2018 redline traverse, noticed the rear wiper doesn't sit flush against the window, now that it's winter time sometimes it doesn't even touch the window when I turn it on, other times it only touches on the middle of the window. I can press it down and it'll work for a day but then pull away about a half inch from the window. Anybody else see this or have any ideas how to fix?

The only cure for this will be to replace the wiper assembly complete. The spring is probably too weak to apply the pressure on the glass.

Personnally here wipers are garanteed for only one year. Same for brakes pads/rotors.

Yes it is under warranty, thanks I'll try the dealer and see what they say
Hi,

I have the same issue, the wiper arm no longer sits flush - of course after I'm out of the bumper to bumper warranty. Would be grateful if you could tell me what the dealer did to remedy this. I'll probably attempt as a DIY.

not sure how the system works, but you may want to check the pivot point on the base of the wiper arm. I had a Chrysler Town & Country that had similar issue, and found where the wiper blade mounts to the pivot was corroded. I removed the wiper arm, cleaned what I could and used spray lube to help free up the arm. You may need to lube the arm pivot and free that up a bit. If that's not the issue, I would agree that spring may be too light. You should be able to purchase a new rear wiper arm??
