Back window blurry after windscreen wash

My rear window is doing my nut in, if I give them both a spray with the windscreen wash the front one clears pretty much ok, does leave some streaks in the middle but the wind seems to get rid of them pretty quickly. The back one however, is just left blurry no matter how many times I put the rear wiper on.

Anyone know of any treatments I can do to my windows to sort them out?


Cheers

Hope your rich.... the wiper blade is integral with the entire arm assembly



Or go out and buy either a cheap wiper or a pack of refill and carefully remove the old rubber and cut new bit to length

Re: Back window blurry after windscreen wash

Def not rich! How much are we looking for the whole arm?

I'll go for the least expensive option I think, or may even just let it be blurry :-)

well you could theoretically just take the arm off and find a similar looking one with the same size mounting hole from another car which has a blade that you can replace

but it would more than likely be longer or shorter or not be sprung in the correct place and miss half the back screen the Motor spindle mount might be a different size..... see where im coming from

Re: Back window blurry after windscreen wash

The alternative sounds slightly more appealing... or nicking one off another GP! I wouldn't :-/ but many would and probably do!
