You get in under the wiper blades. I have this exact same issue on my Scenic 1. The ball joint for the wiper arms wears and it pops out.

I fixed mine by cutting some bungy cord and tied it to hold the ball joint together. About 6 months into this repair, after getting paraniod it would fail during some wet weather, I had a look at it again and put some small pieces of garden hose between the bungy and the metal arms.

A complete bodge but is holding out well.

I thought of putting plastic in the actual ball joint but felt that it may work lose or wear away with the wiper action.

Id be interested to know how much the replacement parts are if you ever find this out.
