54-Reg Scenic - Juddery wipers

Hello folks, my front screen wipers never run smootly across my screen even when its pouring with rain. They are noisy too. Is this normal for Scenics? Maybe because of the size of them??

Ive had the blades replaced on the last service and they said they had to "realign" the blades. They were OK for a short while, now they are as bad as ever !!!

Have you tried to polish the windscreen? That may help? Auto Glym glass polish is recommended

The best thing for widscreens on any car is RainX, I have used it on all my cars .

The windscreen stays clean all the time, it only needs applying every 2 months following the directions on the bottle, put it on all the widows.

Once you go over 40-50 mph even in pouring rain you can switch your wipers off !!!!
The air flow just blows the water off all your windows.

Also your wipers will not judder!

RainX is great until it starts to wear off and get patchy, at which point it actually makes visibility much worse than an untreated windscreen. If you're doing relatively high mileages (I was doing about 45K per year at the time) it's a struggle to keep up, especially as the windscreen has to be clean and dry before you can re-apply.

For people doing 'sensible' mileages, it might not be so much of a problem, but I got really hacked off with it, and not knowing the best way to remove it properly, just kept having to re-apply until I changed cars. I've never let RainX near one of my cars since then, though if I had a car with no back wiper, I'd use it on the rear window.

As for juddery wipers, they can often be fixed just by rubbing neat washing up liquid onto the rubbers and giving them a good wipe with a damp cloth.
