Yeah had mine since June and the wipers have always been garbage, so a month ago bought some genuine ones from work, even bought the rear one too as that was always juddering away to itself too. Since putting the new ones on they have been flawless. So I’m thinking they are putting cheap ones on at the factory, but to be honest the genuine ones I replaced them with were identical to the factory ones I took off, so god knows??

My fronts have always been absolutely fine. The Rear is another story completely. Especially when I put it in reverse and the fronts are on auto, and the screen is dry......

Not for the Tiguan, but other cars. They work and fit fine. Not had any problems.

Had my new Tiguan since July and in recent weeks noticed both the front and rear wipers sticking to the glass/dragging/making unhealthy sounds. I guess the new glass and wiper honeymoon period is over. Note that it was coated by a detailer prior to pick up.

Anyone recommend a decent windscreen cleaner with good rain repellent features? Also any tips to keep wiper rubber slippery - please don't say vinegar as I've tried it and it works for about 3/wipes! :D
We saw juddering of front and rear wipers on delivery of our car in July. The dealer swapped them immediately. They told us that the car is sprayed with something while in transit, and once this is on the wipers they're FUBAR'd.

The new wipers fitted by the dealer have been fine.
