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.
