    Default Aero type flat wiper blades

    Has anybody had trouble with these? I've had them on my old Vectra B with no problems. Ever since i've put them on my new Vectra C the longer of the 2 (i think 24") judders (at the top of the windscreen) on the way down. This leaves huge water marks / dirt marks evertime.

    Do i need to pay out for some Bosch blades (i bought the cheaper £14.00 set) or is there a trick to these?

    Cheers

    I don't rate them at all, either the retro-fit ones, or the factory fits either.

    As per ZS - I have just gone back to the standard Bosh Wipers from Genuine Vx retro fit flat blades.
    They left lines across the screen and shuddered like mad after I washed the car.
    Will rpob stick with the old style blades from now on

    I did the other day. I also topped the screen wash up with a sample of Wurth rapid clear. I drove to the airport in the early hours with pouring rain and didn't use the standard wipers because I could see better without them on.

    I've used Tesco flatblades - £8 for one, and buy-1-get-1-free, and they smeared straight away. Replaced them with Bosch aero flatblades and after 8 months they're still excellent.
