Re: Clio II rear wiper doesnt make contact?!

Sounds like the wiper itself itsn't flexing sufficiently to allow good contact. I have seen some rubbish after-market units fail miserably.

If the original blade is in good nick fitting a new rubber insert may be a better option. I replace the rubber inserts at least once a year on both cars as it only costs around a fiver for decent refills.
