Juddery wipers?

Post by 2968mogul » Thu May 30, 2019 7:10 pm

Anyone else have juddery wipers and a sound like the the drivers side wiper is hitting the A pillar at the extreme of it's clockwise travel? (There is nothing for the wiper to hit as the screen/pillar join is fairly flush)

Mine seem sensitive to the amount of rain and driving speed. Sometimes they are silent and other times they are really annoying!

I haven't made a note of which combinations are bad - maybe I should!

Surrely it doesn't need new wipers after 5,000 miles driving in 6 months....

Try cleaning the screen and blade edges with meths. It may be polish from a car wash or something as simple as tree sap. (silver birch sap particularly is a b*gger to shift)

Thanks Kodiaq. Will do though I can't remember any event when the screen was particularly dirty or sticky.
Unless it's something to do with factory or PDI.

As no one else is having troubles at least it's not a new design feature!!

Presumably your dealer replaced the wiper motor? Take it straight back to them and don't be fobbed off!
