    I have a problem with my passenger side wiper.

    It is not making good contact with the screen. I have tried new blades and even a new arm. Should there be a type/brand of blade I should buy?

    I am happy to take any advice.

    Warm Regards,
    Keith:)

    I bought a set Scotts Auto (dont know if you have them in Brisbane) - they had a listing for the kombi. Probly get them at repco. They were cheap and they work a treat. Im sure they have something original at Mick Motors

    To wipe what?

    Don't you actually need a windscreen in place, to help make them effective? :rolleyes:

    Yes the driver's side works well, but the passenger side, mid sweep misses basically the whole centre of the screen. It is ok when driving in a line, but a pain in the arse if you are turning, crossing a road or looking at a hot chick jogging........

    I will try repco.

    Many thanks for the advice.

    This problem with your wipers is far more serious than I first thought ;)
    nobody jogs in the rain down here :rolleyes:

    If its missing the center of the screen that would be where the screen is the flatest thtat would indicate there is too much curvature on the blade.
