Wipe arm noisy

The wipers on my 2003/4 Scenic 2 (60k miles) are noisy too. Not the classic juddering caused by cleanliness or alignment problems, but more like sloppy hinges in the mechanism, especially as there is quite a clunk when the wiper reverses at end of each sweep.

I note that on the driver’s side wiper the right hand pivot is fairly soft in its mounting as if some screw/nut that holds the gearbox/motor under the black plastic trim is loose. Also on the left hand hinge on this wiper arm there are rust powder stains as if the hinge pin is rusting and then wearing. Am I facing a new wiper arm and how much does it cost? Would oiling the hinges help? Are they all metal or metal pins in plastic bearings?
