Having put up with the erratic wipers for two years and convinced myself it was the sensor :fail I decided to change the wiper blades,even though they were clearing the screen well enough just a bit of chatter now and then. So a pair of Bosch aerotwins of amazon for £22.00 and of I go to Aberdeen again :wallbash:

A bit of light drizzle and a quick sweep of the wipers,now normally they would go into meltdown like it was a monsoon,but no they just parked up and waited for the next bit of drizzle to arrive,behaving themselves perfectly :bannana:

Just driven 700 miles in on off rain,spray and not a problem with them. Just need to sort the folding mirrors out now.

Two years with the same wiper blades is quite a stretch. I tend to change them every 9 to 12 months max. Any sign of wear like streaking and they're out. Especially at the tips, which is where they clear the sensor.

I have not changed mine since I bought the car over 4 years ago, I find most the streaks or marks left on the screen are down to tree sap particles stuck to the blade ad quick wipe down with some vinegar sorts the issue
