Audi S6 Wiper Blade
Audi S6 Wiper Blade Troubleshooting How-To's
Admit it; watching your Audi S6 wiper blade go up and down when you are caught in a rainy day's traffic jam is fun. We have yet to find out what makes a moving blade very entertaining but we are guessing that there is some form of sorcery within this. What we DO know is that the wiper blade will not always be in good condition. Soon enough, the blades will show signs of wearing out and fail to do their job. We discussed the reasons behind the common problems with the wiper so you can be prepared for them. It is in times like these when a little know-how is better than sorcery.
The problems of smearing is the streaks left on your windshield after a drive that had your wiper running. The marks caused by the Audi S6 wiper blade can be caused by three factors: (1) the blades are worn-out, (2) you are using a sub-par windshield cleaner, and (3) the blades are too dirty to clean.
Wearing out is something unavoidable so let's focus on the other two factors. There is a chance that dirt, dust, or even pebbles built-up in the wiper blade assembly. Although dirt and dust cause streaks, the bigger concern is the pebbles (or other bigger objects, like bugs) since they can scratch your windshield. There is also a chance that the windshield wiper fluid you are using is sub-par; using cleaners that have too strong chemical content can harm your windshield's coating.
There will also be times when you notice that the wiper blade shakes when it cleans the windshield. The shuddering can be caused by a dirty blade or a loose blade. A small pebble or too much dirt buildup in the blade can prevent the blade from resting flatly on the windshield; there could be a bump somewhere. Also, a loose wiper blade assembly can give extra space for movement; since the blade is not bolted on securely, it is bound to shake every time.
The case of noisy wiper blades is a bit similar to the case of shaking blades. But aside from being too loose on the assembly, noise can be heard if the wiper blade assembly lacks lubrication. Since the blade is a mechanism of screws and bolts, it is bound to rust and make noise when there is too much friction.
