    Wiper blades ?

    Hi all, i had a new set of wipers from the garage fitted around Christmas time, normal Bosch ones to pass the mot,

    they are getting pretty useless now so im in need of new ones if anyone has recommendations ?

    also is their anything i can do to my wiper blades atm to make them work a little better ?

    I have gave them a clean, but i still get streaky marks on the windscreen,

    ive had aero wipers in the past which worked good, should i just go for the same ?

    thanks.

    Put vinegar on a bit of tissue and wipe the rubber with it.
    Bosch wiper blades are fine. Wiper blades are only really given a life of about 6 months anyway

    I got flat blades and mine are not as good after two months. I get so many bugs and **** though so probably just need a clean.

    Not streaky just UN even pressure in spots. Around centre

    I use Bosch, flat ones. I've had them on for 5 months now and doing a good job so far!

    Try cleaning your windscreen every now and again instead of relying on the wipers to do it. maybe use something such as rain-x or something similar to extend the life of your wipers a bit.

    aeroblades, regardless of make, are still better than the old fashioned hideous looking ones that lift themselves off the screen at high speeds, 3 each off ebay for aeroblades :-)
