Seriously. This has got to be the first time that I've ever failed to put a wiper blade on a car and I feel like a moron having to ask, but maybe I'll feel in dumber having to go to SOA to get the parts department to put it back on.
2013 WRX hatchback
When I was washing my car, I pulled the rear wiper off the windshield so I could clean it. I accidentally bumped into the wiper and the blade fell off the arm. "Easy enough, I'll just put it back on," I said to myself... except I can't. I've pushed the blade back into the arm but can't rotate it to get the tiny locks into place. It looks like the hinge in the socket is actually preventing it from rotating, despite that it looks like I've pushed it all the way into the arm. I've pushed awfully hard to try and go further, but feel like I'm going to break the arm if I go any more.
As far as I can tell, the arm & blade merely separated and I'm missing no parts whatsoever. Neither the blade hinge & locks, nor the wiper arm itself appear damaged in any way.
Is there a trick to this?! I can post pics later if needed....
