wiper question

Two years ago I was chasing a tornadic producing storm when we got hit with a 100+ MPH gust of wind from the side. When that happened the wipers were on their full apex (all the way up) and the driver side wiper slipped up over the car frame before coming back down to normal. We were going 45MPH. Only thing is that now the driver side wiper jumps when going up and when it goes down it just leaves a streak of water, like it doesn't have pressure to wipe the window.

I did follow some advice from another forum which was just to bend the arm but now the wiper arms look funny, the driver side is more bent than the passenger side.

Do I need another arm or can I fix this?

BTW, we never caught the dang tornado...

Re: wiper question

I'd suggest replacing the arm.
