You could try using a clay bar on the screen, give the blades a clean with some degreaser. Could some wax that the dealer may have used prior to delivery. Do you wash the car yourself? As the car washers in garages tend to use wax all ovee the car which could cause your smearing.

Would agree with the above statement. We all thought you be watching your Netflix in the car. Far to busy to notice the dirt on the screen. Don't get it twisted if all fail might be a good idea to pop into dealership for advice.

Well its either on your screen, wiperblades or the screen fluid you are using do not use washing up liquid this will leave a greasy deposit on the screen,try Cillit Bang or something similar.

That's perhaps a little unkind / unnecessary, IMHO. :o :shock:

However relevant / irrelevant some of his comments, PAC does, at the very least, confer some much needed humour on this forum! :) :)

Car Plan glass cleaner works for me. Also try WD40. Sounds daft but it works, just remember to wash the glass afterwards. We used WD40 on fighter aircraft in the Fleet Air Arm, all over!

Some good advise above on cleaning the screen and blades. Once done, use RainX on the windscreen, Really helps getting a clean sweep and greatly reduces the needs to use wipers at speed and I do nit get any smearing.

Good luck
