Cant believe they Stole them...

Driving down the A217, go to clean the windows and SCREECH. The wiper blades and the little plastic cover were gone. Cant believe that someone knicked my Wipers whilst i was at work.

Nearly crashed as it was dark (11pm last night, and the window was covered in washer fluid) Only two weeks old as well.

Small mark on the Window were the metal arm scraped along the glass, think it will polish out, Thiefing To***rs.

Bastards. Come to think about they are really easy to remove? Some desperado obviously needed new wipers. Hard luck man

Thieving scumbags.

Glass is very tough to polish scratches out of. If you can feel it with your nail, it is likely to be too deep.

Ceri glass and a lot of hard work.

A machine is very much recommended.

I didn't think they were easy to remove... I thought (although I haven't changed mine yet) they were a real fiddly job.

They literally clip off, took all of 30 secs to replace mine recently. Whether they differ between pre-LCI & LCI I'm not sure

The guys and Detailing world say it works.

I've bought them the other day but not yet had the chance to try it.

People do stress glass is very tough and it is only minor scratches that can be removed.

I'll get mine done this week hopefully and report back.

I can believe they were taken dude happened to me but only on the old e92

The price of wiper blades is crazy these days they used too be like 3.99 when I started driving now if you want a pair and they are the silicone blade ones with a spoiler thing on them your looking at 50 and coz they are just clipped on there easy too nick for pikey bar stewards

They should be designed to have a clip that snaps once removed so can't be reused as new blades have the plastic clip anyway

Cerium oxide and Rayon glass pads with a rotary polisher (DA polisher is no good) will work although it will take a lot of hours.

You can also cause more damage than good if you're not confident with a rotary.

Luckily my windows were really dirty, so when the metal went across the screen. There is a faint line, but no deep scratch luckily.

how sad, I had the cover for my shark fin stolen in southend and they dented the roof in around it trying to get it off. really takes the piss. The fin don't bother me as it costs peanuts but the dented roof has really pissed me off.

Finally got around to using to today.

Used the ceriglass and pads I linked above with my DAS6 and it worked a treat.

My scratches were caused by seagull poo. Couldn't believe the scratches it left behind when I tried to use the washers to get it off.

The band was about 1" high and about 2.5" wide.

After a fair amount of effort I got all the marks off.

Found it was better to have lots of ceriglass on the pad rather than a few drops.

I'm happy with the results.
