    Wipers

    I know this has probably been asked in the past but couldn't find anything having a brief search...

    ... my front wipers are not clearing the window properly, they seem to smeer all the time, even when the car has been washed, i clean the wipers as well but they still smear. is this a sign that they need replacing?

    if so, can anyone recommend a make which is pretty reasonable quality and not going to cost an absolute fortune

    I'd suggest giving the windscreen a REALLY good clean. It's amazing just how much crap gets 'glued' onto the glass even when it's looking gleaming. It's usually greasy deposits/rubber/tar 'grime' that's smearing on your windscreen.

    Autoglym fast glass works wonders on my car after going over it with a lemon.
