Grrrrrr! Wiper judder!

So I’ve posted about it before in the Gtechniq section, regarding G5. And I think I have the application down, if not exactly perfect. It beads well, and seems to be holding out ok after a month.
But I’m plagued with wiper judder! I tried the tip of putting a coat of C2V3 and that worked for a time. But it’s clearly worn off again, and I’m out of C2V3 now.
After a slightly frosty drive home, and absolutely horrendous wiper judder (which as sent my stress levels through the roof) I really need a permanent solution. Another coat of G5? Something else on top? Attempt to remove it (although glass sealants seem to be impossible to remove) and go back to my trusty RainX?

Wiper blade is about 3 months old, and the window is definitely “bedded in”. Please DW help my sanity!

Imho, this.

I've tried a number of glass treatments over the years and none of them perform better than clean glass.

Not what you want to here mate, but this is why I don’t apply anything to the windscreen - drives me potty !!

If you want to try to remove it, Bar Keepers friend (powder version) and either one of the washing up sponges or some 0000 grade wire wool and some patience, worth a try.

Think you’re other issue if you don’t remove what’s there and top with something else, that might not bond / lay 100% and you might get more issue

Any glass sealant can cause this unfortunately. It is usually due to the pressure/angle of the wiper itself. If poorly designed, judder can happen even with brand new wipers on perfectly clean glass.

They could theoretically be designed to perform smoothly with the coating, but obviously the manufacturers design the part with uncoated glass in mind. Sometimes the coating is just enough to destabilise the movement.

You could try adding graphite to the blade, especially if it didnt originally come with graphite. We also have a Fusso oil-based wiper blade treatment for judder prevention, although it may not be available where you are....

That’s sounds an intriguing product - how does it work ?

I only ever experience wiper judder whenever the windscreen is dry. Essentially what happens is the coating increases the repellency of the glass, the water mostly streams off, the rest is wiped away with a single pass, judder on the next pass because the windscreen is dry, More rain builds up, repeat.

Running my wipers on a slower speed solved it for me
