Brother! cease and desist on OEM, switch to Bosch wipers and things get a lot better or close to normalcy. There's a ton of threads on the forum about it. But, even with Bosch, it's louder than any other car I've ever owned.

Replaced it,and it started streaking at the same point after the 2nd or 3rd rain shower, not sure what the issue is, the wiper or its getting caught somewhere. haven't had time to check it out yet either
I think the wiper arm design overall is pretty weak on the RRS. During the last huge snowstorm in the NorthEast my wipers were embedded in a solid block of ice 3" thick after the car sat overnight. I accidentally tripped the wiper stalk when getting into the car. Obviously the wipers did not move. After I removed all the ice, the right wiper arm started making a knocking noise and eventually stopper moving completely. I am going in for a service to finally fix it next week.umbertob said:Hard to believe (well, not so hard considering it's Land Rover) that they still haven't figured out how to properly assemble a stupid set of windshield wipers, an art most car manufacturers "mastered" about 20-30 years ago... :roll: Considering the streak develops almost right away even with new blades, my guess is that the wiper arms were probably misaligned, under or over tightened upon installation and as a result they put uneven pressure on the blades during their travel across the windshield. There was an old TSB for this issue, applicable to all recent Land Rover models, attached below for reference. I don't know how this would apply on a MY2010 though, since I understand the wiper arms have been redesigned - but clearly not improved much - compared to MY09 and earlier.
Icons work great. They are not in the catalog at your auto parts store, but they will fit and work great! Check the other posts on these wipers.MMK110464 said:I have been looking for Bosch wipers for my Range Rover Sport 2010
According to the Bosch site wiper finder, they do not manufacture the Icon for this model and year. Can it be that they left out the new RRS?
Has anybody tried the Icon wipers for a RRS 2010?
