Default Windshield catchall in winter weather..

How does everyone else feel about the windshields on our Bonnevilles? I hate this car in wintery weather, the windshield ( NEW ) seems to catch everything. I even tried to switch to winter blades ( Anco ), still have a few sopts in the drivers view that wont clean, unless i stop.

How about everyone else?

I have no problem with the wipers clearing.

Back a couple years I put winter blades on my truck and found that any speed over 30mph they were worthless due to being heaved around by wind.

There are newer frameless blades out that I keep hearing quite a bit of good information about. Maybe those will help?

I have no problems with the wipers clearing. I've never heard of this problem. Perhaps the spring tension has weakened on your wiper arms? Just a thought.

Jason.. do you have an original windshield and which types of wipers have you tried. I personally have always been a fan of the Anco Aeroadvantage.

I have the frameless wipers on the Zilla. Clearly the best wipers I've ever used.

However, I don't have the issues on either car mentioned here. There may be something with the water you're using? Or the fluid? Or as mentioned, your blade selection or windshield quality.

Here'* an example:

http://www.michelinwiperblade.com/

Many manufacturers and stores have them now. Think of it as a rubber blade attached to a curved flat spring.

You'll know them when you don't see the traditional 'trussed' arm design.
