I purchased my Passat new about 3 months ago. It's really started raining the past month and I've noticed my wipers smear the rain water all over my windshied, almost leaving a haze. I can barely drive at night because of the smear job they do. I have cleaned the windshied several times, thinking that was the culprit.
So I call VW service today and the guy says they'll take a look at it and it's a chronic problem with new VWs. They've tried replacing wiper inserts, adjusting the angle of the wiper arm, replacing the arms and cleaning the windshield, but nothing seems to work. I found a couple TSBs on it.
Anyone else have this problem? Any good fixes? Is an aftermarket blade the answer?
