not really understanding what your saying but im guessing you have changed the wiper blades on your car?

did you get metal back blades or the cheap/crap plastic backs?

what brand are they - buy crap - get crap.

if your not happy with them, theres nothing you can do about it except replace them with something better.

dont forget to scrub the windscreen clean before you use the new blades, and it always helps if you at least wet the blades the first time, or wet the whole windscreen itself as well.

Maybe you need to add some wiper fluid. Also, depends what wipers you get. My wipers are **** when its just a sprinkle of rain, but when I'm driving through torrential rain they are sensational.
Haha your lucky, have had mine replaced 3 times by Chevy " Holden " at my expense, and they're still **** lol.

Its fine tho, after a certian speed, you stop noticing the water on the windscreen :yeah:

What you need are a set of Trico blades.

You will require model 17-220 (22") and 17-200 (20"). The shorter of the two goes onto the passenger side.l

I use Bosch one peice jobs. They work excellent. However I dont
think you can change the rubber inserts.
Bosch - Aerotwin Wiper Blades
No I dont work for Bosch!
I use the same ones I recommend them a year old still going strong and the car sits in the sun all day.
