I haven't had that specific problem, but i do have one on my front side windows. Everytime we move the windows down and back up there is a line that appears on the outside of the window. i have no idea what is making the mark, but it just wipes off. Does anybody else have this problem?

I just noticed this same thing Monday after putting a real good cleaning on the car and the windows. Haven't tried to wipe them off or anything, but the fact that I noticed it AFTER cleaning the windows concerns me.

windshield wiper mark

I clean my windshield and blades and the mark comes back almost immediately. Has anyone ever found a permanent solution to this? I had it on my 2002 Grand Am as well as on my '06 G6.

Line on windshield

I don't have a picture but I was just told that the windshield is a laminate design. I am told that the laminate design is what causes the rubber to stick to the windshield at the point where the blade is at its max travel towards the drivers side and leaves a residue on the windshield.

I am told that using a wax that is free from any abrasives (good for clearcoat or fiberglass finishes) should help. I have not tried it yet, but I will.

RainX

Do you know for a fact that RainX works or is it just a suggestion?

Thanks,

David

RainX

Well thanks for the useful and helpful information!!

Your attempts at humor are absolutley useless and serve no purpose.
I am trying to get a solution to a persistent problem and you are trying to be witty. You aren't.

For anyone who is interested, the wax did not work, but the Rainx appears to have helped. I won't really know until we get a longer period of rain than the 15-30 minute showers we have had recently.
