Guys I just got some of those neat rain-x wipers, but now that its raining, I found out that the wiper arm no longer has enough force to push the blade flat, so it only wipes on the edge of the blades. Does anyone know a way to tighten them down or something so they press against the windshield harder?

i had this same issue when i replaced my rear wind shield wiper. for about 2 weeks straight i would turn off my truck with my wiper at its flattest possible point(straight up and down), after doing that every night the wiper flattened out and works great now. might work the same for your fronts
