so i've had a astra mk4 for around 4 months now.
ever since i bought it, whenever i have used the windscreen wipers for the first time that day, the windscreen REALLY smudges and goes smeary for about 5 seconds after each wipe, which really isn't very helpful when you're trying to drive and you can't see the road properly!!!! if its raining, the first minute or so of wiping will be constantly smeary/smudgy, then after a couple of minutes with the wiperblades on full speed, it'll clear up and they'll start wiping properly. i didn't have this with my old car, so i guess it isn't normal.
somebody told me i need new wiper blades, but i can't see this being the problem, because that wouldn't explain why it clears up after a minute or two?
has anyone got any suggestions? maybe the windscreen was waxed or something and i need some strong chemicals to get it off? i wash my car every week and this hasnt removed it. i have used proper glass cleaner stuff and that has not removed it.
not a huge problem i know, but thanks in advance!!!
