wiper blade problems

Hi. I have a 2004 Scenic II. Been having problems with the wiper blades dragging and juddering accross the screen. Replaced the blades with new Valeo ones, cleaned the windscreen, but occasionally they still judder.

I have removed the arms and reseated them and tightened all the linkage nuts. I have tried bending the arms in and out, but nothing seems to cure it sufficently.

Anyone had similar problems or have any ideas on where to go next. I think there maybe something in bending the arms slightly, but not sure how far out or in to do it, as what i have tried so far hasnt worked.

Quite a common problem on the Scenic II.

Check all the linkages do not have excessive play and all move freely a light lubrication of all joints/links/springs can also help.

After cleaning the glass/wiper blades I always give the rubbers a run over with a paencil a light coating of graphite the thick builders pencils are best for this.

I have noticed some Scenic II screens seem to have a bump just in front of the drivers wiper sweep area.

The problem might be that the wiper rubber isn't at right angles to the screen. Rotate the blade one way or the other by bending the arm a bit.

Premature wear of the drivers side wiper arm bushings is a common problem on the Scenic II (mine has only 32000 miles).
The design was improved in 2005.
I have bent the wiper arm on mine quite significantly to overcome the problem in the short-term.
The only long term solution appears to be a replacement set from Renault at 90 or from a breakers unless anyone out there know of an aftermarket option?
