Windshield wipers

When it's raining and the wipers go all the way to the left and start back to the right the left wiper will throw a small pudle of water back on the wiped part of the windshield.This only happens when traveling at highway speeds so i'm thinking of the air coming off the hood causing this.I thought about putting a deflector on the hood and see if that would help.Has anyone else noticed this on their trucks.

I have not, and I've got a bugshield, but it's only rained once since I've had the truck. I'll try to keep and eye on it and let you know if it doesn't happen on mine with the bugshield next time it rains...

Happens to me all of the time. The puddle always end up in front of the lens for the dash cam too.

I know mine is a 6.0 but I really think it is a Ford problem. My buddies OBS has the same problem. If you live where it rains a lot you just get used to it and don't really notice it after awhile.

...unfortunately ...no...you still get a dollop of water landing on your windshield in your field of vision...

The original question was whether a hood deflecter stopped this from happening....so does it???

Yes it does; also vastly improves visibility in terrential downpours of rain here in florida. Weather Tech has great fit and finish, and made here in USA.
