    Thats what i thought the only thing i could think was the little plastic clips that hold the rubber in place was scratching it

    I noticed a scratch on my screen today but i have the vaux flatblades, its only noticable in very bright sunlight (hency why i only noticed it today lol) but it sailed through the mot no probs. Have you got something stuck underneath the blade? Thats what I think happened with me, some grit me thinks thats if it was the wipers.

    Are the scratches perfectly in-line with the plastic clips?

    no way they have scratched the window unless you got a metal bit sticking out, toothpaste and a cloth is all you need to get the marks out
