Clean and coat the wipers

Some coatings are prone to causing this but never had a problem with h2go

Still would be worth giving the blades a clean.

I use H2GO and haven't had any issues with wiper judder.

I use H2GO and i have also had problems with wiper judder in the beginning (first few weeks after application).

If it was just light rain than it juddered. Im thinking it was not enough liquid (water) on the glass to lubricate the blades and so that created too much friction between the blades and the glass. But when it was pouring rain i did not have any problems. The glass was well wet and the wipers were wiping normally.

Dont know why, dont know how, dont know when but it eventually stopped.

The good thing about it is you just drive a bit faster and you dont need the wipers as water just slides off (but i think you already know that).

Thats the same as me, a small amount of rain the more judder, the more rain the less judder also squeaky too I forgot to mention!

I'll give them a clean too, but Kimo also mentioned "Coat" the blades! am I right in thinking you mean apply H2GO to the blades too?

I reapplied h2go last week and had judder with one blade at the weekend. However before that it was strong for months with no issues so definitely stick with it! For the price its one of the best imo

Yeah, he means a layer on the wipers too
