2005 Sportage EX Rear Wiper hanging down

All of a sudden, the rear wiper arm is drooping down on my Sportage. I think there used to be something on the rear windshield to hold it in place, but I don't know for sure. Does anyone know if I need to replace the whole arm? If I put the arm back in the correct position, I can use the wiper just fine, but it won't stay in the normal "off" position.

Any advice is appreciated!

The wiper arm may have come loose on the motor spindle.
