Lightbulb Issue with windshield wipers

Hello fellas

Recently I have issue with the windshield wiper/s ( only one is having " strange behavior" haha ).

When i'm turning on the wipers, the left one is not " laying down ", i can't even describe the issue, i'll attach photo which I took while raining to show you what I meant.

As you can see also the left side of the windshield, even the wiper can't pull down the water out of it.
The left windshield wiper can't lay down after turning off the wiper as you can see on the photos.

I would start by pulling off the under hood cowl cover and making sure everything is tight. It (almost) looks like your wiper motor or linkage may be loose causing the linkage to sag and pull down on the wiper “spindles” which might pull them away from the glass.

I would also check the spring tension on the arms, do the “flop” around or is there decent downward pressure on them.
