I had the same problem on my '95 a few years back.

I was lucky; it happened the day before I took "Baby" in for an oil change. My auto tech simply "tightened" a loose arm: no charge! Never a problem thereafter.

Don't panic. You might simply need to tighten your jib. :)

There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved. - Ludwig von Mises

Not the wiper arms E, when you set the arm it should be 3/4 of an inch below the stop, but a half inch seems to get it back to normal. If you have a fish scale the pull in the half wipe position should be between 28 and 34 oz (1 ' off the glass)
