    Default New aero wiper blades rocking and rattling

    I've had new GM aero wiper blades fitted to my car for about three weeks. Up until now i haven't had a problem but now the drivers side blade is shaking and thudding on the return swipe. It's very annoying but doesn't seem as bad with water on the screen has anyone come across this before and is there a fix?

    Same applies as with normal wipers - arm is slightly twisted, so the blade's not sitting flat on the glass.

    If it's juddering on the upstroke, you need to twist it anticlockwise (looking along the arm towards the bonnet). If it's juddering on the downstroke, you need to twist it clockwise.

    I agree, the GM ones lasted about a month before they started streaking on mine, I've tried GM, Vareo, even Tesco, but the best I've found are the Bosch.

    I had by GM ones on for less than a day before i lost the rag and pulled them off and binned then, streaking and not cleaning the swept area. Bosch ones like these: http://www.aceparts.com/wiper-blades...c5-fitment.htm are very good and well priced.
