    Default Windscreen wipers smearing help please....

    Hi Guys

    My girlfriends ka is causing problems with its wipers. When you use them you get a 2/3 inch wide smear across the screen on the drivers side. Tried 2 sets of wipers and made no difference. Cleaned with windowlean 3 times and degreased and still no difference. When you spray the washers it leaves a rainbow effect on the screen which suggests to me there is oil on it but cant seem to shift it

    Any ideas???

    Thanks Tom

    Stick hot water in the washer fluid bottle.

    Failing that, stick some very weak fairy liquid in, but rinse it out after with ordinary water

    flush your tank, and put some vinegar on a cloth and wipe your wipers with it, that will get rid of all the grease off your wipers.
