Lift both wipers off the screen so they are automatically held in the off-screen position then put the wipers on full speed for 5-10 minutes. In a lot of cases where wipers were previously jerky, this will resolve the problem

Re: 146 windscreen wipers!!!!!

Do a serach on jerky wipers or something similar, there are a few threads about this, it's caused by grease getting on the track inside the wiper motor, or by the track itself wearing through.

There will come a point when the wipers wont move, then you can get onto changing the motor, but till then, I wouldn't worry.
