    I bought a brand new pair of Bosch Aeros to go on my car. Although they clean the windscreen brilliant. When they change direction. They clunk as the blade flips.

    Anyone else get this?

    I did think that, so I've given them a month or so. Still doing it :(

    The little black bit on the stalk that the wiper blade attaches to (it's like a tiny black cube) It's meant to swivel 360 degrees freely. My wipers were doing my head in recently and it turned out to be that - all gunky and rigid. Cleaned and all is fine.
    May not be your problem, but worth a check!

    In fact, look at the 2nd picture in this thread, that's the little bit I'm talking about.

    Just looked at mine and the end swivel bits. Didn't make any difference, they stil clunk when changing direction. Just one of those things I'm guessing.

    Had a good look at mine. They're smearing REALLY badly too. Utter **** for brand new Bosch wipers.

    Oh well, worth a try. quattrojames suggested to me last week to try claying the windscreen and wiping the blades with some white spirit or similar.
