9n3 VW polo rear wiper blade pressure

Post by C-Nuggets »

Good afternoon, my first every post on a forum! I assume I just make everything clear and simple etc.

So I have a 9n3 VW polo 1.4 TDi BNV 2008. My rear wiper blade doesn't wipe evenly, in the middle of the wiper in the middle of the glass. I was thinking it was the wiper blade, replaced but no change. Previously I have owned a mk5 golf wagon and had a similar issue and fixed it by changing the wiper arm, which i have just done on my polo but no change. The brands I have used, wiper arm: Vaico and wiper blade: Bosch 330mm (bluemotion and GTIs have a 280mm listing)

As you can see in the pictures, it is literally not wiping at all.

If anyone has any ideas on how to rectify this issue, I am all ears.

Moderately good news.

I had a Bosch wiper fitted, went back to my auto parts store and got a Valeo.

It appears the "tension" on the Bosch was stronger, the Valeo is better yet still has this random spot where it won't wipe!

Is the rear window a replacement or factory?

Sometimes there is a slight deviation on replacement ones which may have caused this as well as the tension of the blade mentioned!

or if it persists remove it completely !!!
