Re: wiper chatters

     Just a note to those yet unaware...
     Make sure you install the refills correctly:
     Those metal inserts that come from the old blades and go into the new 
     refills have a spring-like function.  They must be installed such that 
     the curvature of the spring is outward, i.e. the new blades must be 
     convex (center of the blade contacts the windhield first) towards the 
     windshield with the help of these "springs", not concave!
     I found this the hard way, when the service dept installed 
     (incorrectly) the refills on my Corrado.  The result was a chatter 
     that really drove me nuts, while I could barely see anything out the 
     '90 100
     '90 Corrado G60
