Wiper problems

So I have been dealing with bouncing wipers now for ages and have finally brought myself to buy a new set.
Went to Halfords today but they were out of stock of Bosch ones so ill go back tomorrow as they are getting them in. But as I was taking the old ones off to check what size they were I noticed the drivers side arm was a little loose. (compared to the passenger side)

Not sure if that would cause the wipers to bounce or not but was wondering if anyone knows how to tighten the arm? I would go out and look but the snow is still crazy here atm and dont fancy another freezing!!

Or does anyone know a good fix to stop wipers bouncing or any recommended wiper blades?

It's mainly caused by wax on the screen. Often diesel fuel after a motorway run. You need a cream cleaner that really attacks the glass. It also sorts out auto wipers!

I bought some Bosch ones from Eurocarparts yesterday and using the discount code they were 22. Fitted them last night and appear to work very well, but for the love of god don't buy the VistaPro ones
