Yes, on a RHD car - the lower right side in front of the driver where the wiper blade parks. The screen is curved at its greatest angle at this point and the pressure on the blade pressing it against the screen is the least and even with the 'build in' curvature of an original blade, sometimes the rubber doesn't quite have uniform contact with glass. You regularly see the last couple of inches on the outer edge of the blade not in complete contact with the glass.

The original blades are Trico B7, and are as rare as rocking horse droppings. I last got some from CW at the last Henley national, whenever that was.
