SportCross rear wiper spring

My rear wiper leaves streaks, even after changing the blade to a brand new one. I noticed that the spring pressure against the windows is very weak, compared to front wipers.

Is it common or even normal for SX? Any solution other than replacing the whole wiper arm including that spring?

Mine does the same thing as well, I wonder if they always did that or if it is just a worn spring.

Mine does the same. Annoys the hell out of me. Hopefully someone has found a solution
