    You would get an answer quicker by phoning Motability/VW dealer then posting. I would get it sorted quick, as you might start scratching the windscreen as the metal part of the wiper will come into contact with the windscreen.

    Wipers should be changed once every 6 months, or at least every year.

    Assuming it's Motability you're covered, just pop into the garage and they will sort it out for you.

    It’s a know thing with the windscreen wipers on the MK 7 Golf (don’t know about the Mk 6) that the wiper are not as good as they should be and on the Golf forum I use it has often had this question turn up and what I can make of it their having the blades replaced under warrantee but that said no problems for you so just call your dealer.

    BTW my new Golf is not showing any problems with the blades so I’m hoping they’ve put better blades on them now because even if you don’t pay for it you still got to go out of your way to have them replaced and that can be many a miles drive for some.
