1990 Honda Civic bent rear wiper Sign In

Someone has yanked my rear wiper arm so it does not work properly, it still moves when turned on though. The whole pivot point and wiper arm has been bent. I have tried to simply bend it back but it won't budge. Unsure on how to fix it. Can post a photo later if needed.

First: How in love with this car and feature are you?
ZILLIONS of vehicles do NOT have rear wipers that really could use them or just in the way and break like you said yours is bent somehow. Drive thru car washes routinely break them and or people leave them on dry way too long?
Careful good pics would help to fix this or just do without and take wiper arm off and get a cap to cover it. IDK - may not be legal if OE equipped if not there and working if noticed at some inspection places by your location. Car would fail if known broken where I am!

1990! Might be hard for parts new or used? T

If the wiper stub is actually bent, your probably going to need to remove the rear wiper assembly to see what would need to be done to straighten it out (if that is possible). A visual is going to help you determine what you need to do.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.
