Juddering wiper blade
My 2005 Vauxhall Meriva had 2 new Wiper-blades about 2 months ago. Since then one of the wipers judders/jumps across the windscreen making an excruciating noise for as long as its on. Any suggestions as to what could be wrong? Its never been a problem until now. Thanks for your time.
Sometimes you just get bad blades and other times the wiper arm angle has changed from normal wear and tear, you can try using a small crescent wrench to slightly bend the wiper arm one way or the other depending on what way the blade chatters across the windshield. Spring tension is also important, if you don't have enough then you will get the chatter both directions, too much and the blade will not flip back and forth so it will only wipe the windshield one direction. Hope this helps.
Thanks for your help and advice 'tennisshoes' - I've had a lot better look at the wiperblade, and even though its a new one, to me it just doesn't look as though it fits right, so I'm going to buy another one and have someone fit it for me. If this doesn't work then I'll try your crescent-wrench trick. Once again thanks ever so much for replying. I'm very grateful. FoxxieFoxx
