Smearing across windscreen - new wiper. Cause?


Recommended Posts

Replaced my driver-side wiper about a month ago and initially everything was perfik.

Then 2 weeks ago the wipers seemed to sieze-up and I was told it was the motor which was replaced and they worked fine.

I note though that on the driver-side on the "up" sweep there is a step-like smear which gets cleaned on the down sweep.

It is in the line of sight and somewhat annoying.

I have cleaned the blade thoroughly [nothing on it] and also scrubbed the windscreen in case there was anything on it but all to no avail.

I will go back tomorrow to the garage but any idea on possible causes?
