    Mines done that since new, my last mk3 also did the same - not sure if the type of blade makes any difference to the judder.

    I’ve heard that from a few people, do you know the fitment detail and size? I’m hoping if I change it that might solve the problem

    Its interesting as i went and bought the 'recommended' by the forum Valeo blades, found them to be utter crap on the front windscreen however the rear one is perfect.

    So I now have Bosch on front, Valeo on the rear, no judder.

    Also try cleaning the glass with clay bar to get the glass surface nice and clean, wash the grit and dirt off first and then bar it with some soapy water.

    Mine does this too. Very annoying. Getting a new one to see if it makes a difference

    The OEM ones are Valeo - the Valeo branding is embossed on the rubber blade.

    One of the primary reasons why they judder is when left on when the rear screen is dry. Had to replace mine after 3 months from new after the my wife had the car for a week. Just come back from a business trip and I need another one :banghead:

    That said, they’re extremely easy to swap over, so wouldn’t be surprised if a few had been exchanged in car parks over the years.

    I use Valeo front and back and I've found them to be quiet and long lasting.

    There are a couple of Valeo blades that will fit but "Silencio VR265" is one of them. That's a 13" blade, which is the stock size, but a 14" blade will fit.

    Less likely on the back but if you cannot get wipers to clean properly and quietly the glass may be contaminated with something. Never seen it on the back actually but I've replaced two windscreens for this reason.

    I have used Heyner (German) since I re[aced the OE wipers, and have recently just bought another set from Amazon again. They are great, long lasting and no juddering or noises. The front set 26"/16" cost £18.99 and the 14" rear was £8.99, I also clean the glass every now and then with a proper windscreen spray.

    I changed mine for a Bosch a383h blade works ok at the moment.
    The one I replaced guessing was originally fitted when new dragged like hell across the window.

    Euro car parts F'ed up and gave me a Bosch rear wiper for a Golf rather than a Leon. It's shorter by an inch or so but I've found it doesn't make as much noise or judder as much as the bigger one.

    This is what you want. I had the same issue after fitting Bosch blades. fitted this Valeo one back in November and it’s not made even a squeak since.

    Yeh, but it is over £5 more than mine, remember I'm Scottish and want good stuff at the cheapest price.
