Windshield wiper blade issue

When i run the wipers, the left blade appears loose and flimsy. I checked it and it is securely connected to the arm but the bottom left portion of the blade is screwy. It also makes an awkward sound as it moves across the windshield.

Has anyone else had this problem? Does it need to be replaced?

The car is less than a month old and this is the third day I have used the wipers.

Thanks in advance.

Could be the windshield tensioner thing. It isn't holding it flat against the windshield. The dealer messed mine up when they replaced the blades.... I was like well y'all are the only ones to have touched it. Guess you better get fixing lol

Another possibility, I replaced my wiper blades recently and the pass side blade was missing the little metal sleeve that rides on the pin - defective out of the box. Tire Rack did send me a new one right away however so it wasn't a bad situation. Doesn't make you feel like you're getting your money's worth when you're paying $15 apiece plus shipping for wipers though!
