  1. I am also facing this exact same problem after replacing the wiper blades, i suspect that it is due to the wiper arm bolts not properly calibrated.

    I don't agree with the comments on OEM wiper blades quality and life. My Punto has completed two years and I'm still on the OE blades. No issues at all. You need to ensure that the blades are lubricated once in a while so that they don't end up getting dry and hard in our extreme weather conditions. I've always mixed suitable wash/wipe fluids available in the market and avoid using plain water in the reservoir. You need to use the wiper blades frequently to ensure the rubber doesn't deteriorate.

    @Maverick: The installation is faulty. Get it corrected.

    @Dilip and @nkapoor777: Yes i totally agree with you, the wiper blades should last for some time and not a few months. MANU had suggested waxpol to be used, do you have any other product in your mind. I have been using armorall diluted with water. When i use it the problem is not there till the soapy water is there on the glass after which the problem starts once again.

    ^^^ Yes Ajit, I am currently using waxpol solution. Earlier I was using Sonax which I picked up from TASS.

  6. Yes maverick... i have been facing this problem for almost 4 months now and another two GP's which had come to the service centre also faced this problem and i enquired from the SE and he told me that best solution was to clean the glass with white toothpaste, in which the glass becomes smooth afterwards and if still problem persists then to get the wiper changed

    @Dilip that's an excellent piece of information. Thank you . Anybody who have replaced the wiper blades with Bosch rather than going for OEM ?? How much does the bosch blades cost ?

    cinju oem blades are manufactured by bosch

    I too faced this problem, cleaning it with Mr. Muscle and changing wiper blades cured it. (Don't know exactly which solution worked for me)

    Wiper blades price have gone up now it costs 1200/- for Linea

    Yes ! I am also experiencing this.
    But I noticed that vibration of right side wiper goes off after some long time of rain.
    If there is small amount of rain then wiper vibrates. If there is vast amount of rain for long time then vibration goes off. In addition to that I am getting half circled line because of upper end of right wiper.
