    basically i had my windscreen replaced, ever since that my wipers will miss a spot.
    This annoying this is that its right in my eye line, but if i have the wipers on constant it will only do it like every 1 in 5 wipes. Which i cant understand as if it was the wiperblades it would do it all the time.
    anyone got any ideas?
    thanks

    Could be the spines on the arms or shaft are damaged and move around .

    Wipers have worn to the old glass, as above new wipers needed.
