Noisy wipers

Post by INDIALIMA » Mon Oct 22, 2018 2:26 pm

1.4TFSI Sline auto, 6 months old, has developed noisy wipers at half speed (less noisy when at full speed). Anyone had similar issues and if so how was it corrected (under warranty?)

Can you define 'Noisy' is the motor noisy, or the mechanism, or are the wiper blades scraping or screeching on the screen.

Heavy 'clonk' at each end of travel, especially in medium speed mode.

Without seeing and hearing it is difficult to diagnose, two possibilities come to mind:
1. The blades noisy as the rubbers flip over and change their direction of travel, suggest checking the rubbers, if OK, clean with vinegar and then also and cleaning the screen, a good screen wash additive may help.
2. Faulty linkage, this is one for your dealer.

Hope this helps, anyone else got any ideas.
