Windscreen wipers for a DOBLO

Bit of strange thing to ask but with all the rain today, I was getting more and more infuriated with the front wipers making an intolerably loud squeak, every time the wipers go to back the 'park' position, so it only happens when they are moving in one direction ! I got these fitted by a local tyre company as they were offering a cheap deal (including the fitting !) Is it just the quality of the wipers that cause this ? Normally things like this dont bother me but TODAY it did ! Maybe I am stressed ?

Thumbs up Re: Windscreen wipers for a DOBLO

Cheers for this one I was just off to the motor factors to buy new wipers as the noise was driving me MAD.

Re: Windscreen wipers for a DOBLO

Make sure they tip over pushing the blade will cause it to judder & squeak sometimes you have to put a slight twist in the arm

Re: Windscreen wipers for a DOBLO

I just ordered a set of wipers off E-bay that have built in washers on the blade. Hopefully that will improve visibility.
