Re: Juddering front wipers

The vinegar was to remove the polish,,
Your arm itself is not bent, is it, and putting too much pressure on the blade.
Hence the juddering,

Re: Juddering front wipers

Without stating the obvious have you tried cleaning the rubber ...can you change the blade with the one on the other side to see what happens ....

Re: Juddering front wipers

At risk of stating the bleedin' obvious the blades are supposed to bend away from the direction of movement, so they trail behind, so to speak, if it doesn't the arm is pushing the blade edge forward instead of pulling it behind itself, and then the blade will judder and jump over the glass. I've had this happen with old blades which are so old they've acquired a 'set' in one direction only and so won't fold over for the reverse direction.

Re: Juddering front wipers

I have been known to take an adjustable spanner to the flat part of the arm.
To alter the set of the arm so the wiper sits square to the screen.
Testing afterwards, to see that it "flaps" equally.
Similarly, as mentioned earlier, I use a cloth soaked in vinegar, to wipe the working edge of the rubber. You'll be surprised how much cr4p ends up on the cloth.
Change em, would you happily use a 5 year old condom, this is your life we're talking about here?
