Just another possibility....perhaps not;


Try cleaning the windscreen with a light rubbing compound and use a blade scraper to lightly remove any micro buildup..you will be surprised what will be removed..

Then clean the windscreen with a good windscreen polish...

Also have you tried different wiper blades...it may be the buildup on the screen and the rubber of the blades...

We use Farecla paste compound G3 grade, you can buy this in any good motor factors.
You only require the smallest tub, cut a carwash sponge into a third and wet it and squeeze most water out. Then apply a 1 inch blob on the wet area and work it into the screen in overlapping circles using quarter area at a time.....as soon as it dries blade it off then rub it up with a microfibre cloth..

PLEASE NOTE; dont get it on the rubbers as it may mark them. You dont want the paste to be too wet and run all over the place, just a nice workable covering like waxing your car....

Once screen is cleaned off, use a good windscreen cream like Auto Glym Car Glass Polish.



The Compound will not go to waste..you can use it to remove any heavy bug marks/light scratches etc from the paintwork in the same method....if you had a valeting polishing m/c it would make it easier for the body..



Good luck
