    Default Bosch wiper blades, Your Opinion

    Since buying bosch wipers 3rd time now. Driver side in a month keeps leaving a line after it done the wipe!

    Now 2 lines. I inspected the blade rubber, no nick or tear, no dirt or grit. Even used old tooth brush and brushed it clean. Same crappy results!!!

    Inspected other 2 and same line thing but not same area as 3rd bladething, its fine but gives lines on others...

    I also checked windscreen surfacce. No damage to it whatsoever.

    Whats ur opinion about bosch? I'm thinking of complaining to bosch as its def not fit for purpose 3 times iin a row!!!

    Whats ur blade brand and its review???

    I use bosch aero twins and can't fault them at all. They were bought to replace the crap VX valeo ones on my last car and were one of the first things I got for my new Vec. That was about a year ago and they are still spot on

    I'm in the same boat, ive got this too, bosch aero twin, brought them from eurocarparts when they had a discount code, so got them pretty cheap, they lasted about a week then started to leave lines, i've 3 lines at the moment, yes it's a pain but it's not too distracting, first time ive used these but probably won't use them again, think i'll stick to VX ones, as never had any issues.

    I got some from asda and they are spot on. Only had them 2 months but no problems at all. I had some tesco ones before and they are not worth it at all. Both asda and tesco are £7 per blade

    Noticed Home Bargains have some in, may give them a try when the current ones fail.

    It seems its nearly common! Wipers are meant to withstand grits and clear them as well as rain etc, 3 bosch set so far isnt a good result! I cant even buy 24" blade at halfords. To replace the faulty blade.

    Its 24" for driver side, 21" for passenger side
