windshield/wiper problem?

Hi guys

I have a 2000 Toy camry, Last year I had to replace the windshield.

Now the problem I see is that the windshiled never become clean like before.

When I change the viper it will be ok for 2-3 weeks, then again the same thing.

I am not sure if it is the quality of the glass, because I already tried different vipers including the one I bought from Toyota.

Any suggestions

What brand of glass did they use? Look along the bottom it will be on either side or the middle identifying who made it.

Did you try going back to whoever installed it and explain your problem?

Also the best way to clean your windshield is with "Bon Ami". Some manufacturers have TSB's about using it to clean windshields. Then replace the blades, I myself find OEM blades work the best.

Do a Google search on "how to clean a windshield" and you will be surprised as to what you find.

This website is the parent company. They have a "where to buy it" section listings stores in the New York area which carry the cleanser.
Bon Ami has been around almost forever.

thanks for the info

Now I know why it is not available in this area.

The only product available in NY supermarkets is the Bon-Ami cleanser

Is that the right product ?

Glass cleanser is not available in this area

Thats the right stuff. Wet the windshield and sprinkle the powder on and scrub with a cloth. Rinse it well, don't forget to scrub the rubber of the wiper blades.
