My wipers relay near the steering column continues to make this weird noise. Is mine faulty or you have it also?

Yes I hear the click also. Mildly irritates me as my Tig has auto supers and it doesn't have the click.

This has been a problem with the 2018 Polo wiper blades, juddering. Not sure if the T-Cross has the same size blades as the Polo? but many of the Polo forum have replaced them with the following and has cured 98% of the juddering.

Did you have them clean your car before you took it away, the last time I had a service, they washed it, that's the first and last time I let them do that, the first time I turned on the wipers, it juddered, I took it home and spent a good half an hour cleaning what ever they used to clean the windows. All is fine now!!

If the blades are the same size, get a set, you won't find them cheaper anywhere else.

I have had the same on my 2017 Up from new annoyingly I have just had to replace them because the rubber split just couldn’t hang on a few more weeks for my t cross to come. I replaced them with the Bosch’s aero twin wipers and they are now perfect wish I changed them earlier. If my t cross is the same I will definitely replacing them

After having my car done with cquartz the guy who did it said they put window treatment on ... I’m sure this is causing my wiper judder as it’s fine when using the car screen wash . After attempting to clean window with meths(doesn’t work )I’ve now tried white vinegar which the detailer recommends... now where’s that rain 😳

Our T-Cross had a similar thing, we went for a long drive down south just after we got it and it rained a far bit, and the wipers were annoyingly juddery.

More recently (couple of months later) they are much much better, no noticeable judder at all and we haven't done anything to the wipers or the windscreen, it just seems that the wipers need a little time and use to soften up and settle in.

The wipers still speak on our cross, 8 months on. Never had it on the Tig, UP! or Polo. Maybe where they source the parts from as the Cross is built in Spain, the Polo was South Africa and the Tig Germany and UP! I think Czech republic.

Vw just suggested I clean blades with white vinegar.doh I’ve already done that . Still I ll do it again but pretty sure it’s the cquartz screen covering that’s causing this . Anyway the detailer said he would fix it but try vinegar a couple more times he said if it’s no better he would remove the coating by another method .wiper works fine on screen wash which leads me to believe it’s the coating. . Anyone who’s thinking about having a ceramic coating on their car it may be an idea to avoid the windows ....

No coating in my wifes windscreen but the wipers still judder on it.

This is purely down to VW using a cheaper supplier.

Anyone know a good set of none VW replacements?
