auto car wash rips off rear wiper

Two different auto car washes have left the rear wiper hanging. Internet searches have provided info that this problem exists in different auto manufactures. A suggestion was to tape the wiper to the window before running through. Anyone else with this issue?

I've never heard of that before with any vehicle until now. I've never had that issue with any of my vehicles. You must live next to some car washes that do a really good job. Mine never do a good job at cleaning the rear but maybe that's a good thing...
My rear wiper was ripped off at the car wash. They usually tape it with blue painter's tape. Must have missed it that time. The tape works.
A mental note of checking the wiper is a good idea. The first time i drove wome only to see the wiper hanging down. As i grabbed it the unit came off without pulling on it. Normally, i can easily figure out how things go back together but when an additional clip fell to the groung made it a challenge to reassemble.
2019 MKC rear blade was ripped off and it was taped down. The carwash did order a new wiper arm and replaced it but, needless to say, I have found a new car wash.
