Any cure for this? It's a Halfords pair I bought 5 months ago..shouldn't still be squeaking. Driving me nuts! Are Bosch any better?
Damn near half price!I'm using Tesco ones - silky smooth, not sure they last quite as long as Bosch ones but they are considerably cheaper!
I remember why now....it was smearing. Had to use glass cutter to remove the stuff.Damn near half price!
I'm pretty sure treating the glass with rain repellent would smooth the blade action but I stopped using the stuff for some reason. They're ok for the rear glass but something put me off using it on the windscreen. Can't remember why at the minute.
Rain X adds a non stick coating to glass that makes water form tiny droplets as it can't stick the the glass. This is perfect on side and rear windows as the water simply blows off. The windsceen wants to clear of anything anti stick as so the blades can scrape off the bulk of the water then what is left is a very thin almost invisible film that is see through!! You can see this if you use the washer jets to wash a dry screen in the summer, watch just behind the moving blades and you will see this thin film of water evaporate!! Rain X makes this thin film ball into micro droplets so to the eye looks like a smear!! Lesson overI remember why now....it was smearing. Had to use glass cutter to remove the stuff.
Good lesson, but then if it looks like a smear, I guess it's amounts to the same thing. That's why I stopped using it on the front. But definitely useful on rear and side windows that don't have wipers. I actually used to apply it on my glass shower cubicle door. Didn't need squeegeeing so often.Rain X makes this thin film ball into micro droplets so to the eye looks like a smear!! Lesson over
