    Hi all

    Since some time I noticed that windscreen wipers leave white marks and during little rain when wipers are used sometimes , it's hard to see something. I got to use windscreen washer fluid often to clean screen.

    What is wrong?
    Fluid? - I use MB
    Wiper blades? - I replaced wipers 6months ago (£45) (non MB but Bosch)
    Something to do with glass?

    thanks

    I would give the screen a good clean with T cut, it will take off all the road grime and film. then wash the blades in soapy water.

    It is also possible that your washer tank is full of unpleasant deposits and something like Milton could help clean it all out
