159 wiper madness

Hi all,
an interesting problem has developed on my way in to work this morning... as it was raining I had the wipers on (having recently replaced the blades) and everything was fine for almost the entire journey until the drivers side wiper decided to reach full extension and then just keep going - ending up next to the drivers side mirror!!

I've re-positioned the wiper to where it should naturally rest and tested it - it still sort of works but now won't fully extend and comes back to rest against the bonnet.

has anyone come across this in the past and is it an easy (and more importantly cheap) fix?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, happened to me after I tried to fix my wiper mechanism, just a case of ensuring the nut on the top pivot of the wiper arm is nice and tight!
