I had/have the same issue plus the passenger side wiper make a squeak when it goes to the start position. The wobbles went away after heavy showers and for the squeak service guy says use shampoo. I dont buy it but will let it be till 15k service.

For the wobbling i would suggest apply carnuba wax (Formula 1 polish or other) to the windsheild. That will make the surface smooth and hence no wobbling. Worked on my linea and esteem.

I do not use any Glass cleaner. I do not use any special wiper fluid. Instead I pour normal water in wiper fluid tank & put some drops of "Colin"

There is no wobbling in Wiper in my car.

Logically, wobbling could be either of the 1) Glass surface OR 2) Wiper arm bent applying more pressure on the windshield than required

ya if the surface is not smooth then yes. Just drain the tank and fill it with regular water. Add a little clinic plus shampoo and that will be more then enough. Toyota guys do the same.

Oh and yes wax the wind shield like i was talking about to smooth the surface

The best (in my experience) additive to the glass cleaner is "Chik Black Shampoo", one sachet and you will see the difference. Have tried on all cars that I have access to with "bright" results.

Yes. Before "Colin" I used to use a few drops of hair shampoo (could be sunsilk or Chik)
