Now that we're back in the rain in Texas, a persistent wiper issue has finally made me want to permanently fix it. I had the car about a year before I switched out blades. OEM was what was on it, it did fine, but I was taking a trip and wanted new blades. Put on new OEM blades and they squeaked and streaked. Took them back and got Bosch. Marginally better, but after a month or two it was back. Essentially didn't drive in the rain until now and the squeak and streak is back with a vengeance. It'll be fine for the first few minutes of moisture on the windshield and then start causing problems. Turning them off for a minute and letting the windshield get wet again starts the process over. It "appears" that the bottom of the wiper chatters across the windshield, while the top seems to squeak. It seems like this is on both wipers. So things I have tried: New blades (both OEM and top of the line Bosch) Aggressively cleaning the windshield: I used tried and true GM/Goodwrench foaming glass cleaner and the ol' newspaper and vinegar Rubbed my hand over the glass to see if there's anything Searched this forum (saw one post where someone bent their wiper arms prior to the j-hook) Before I start bending arms, looking to see if anyone else has this issue? I'm thinking it's either equally bent arms (maybe?) or some residue on the windshield from an auto-wash that stubbornly won't come off. If it's the latter, any recommendations for a really good cleaner? I guess the worst case is a new windshield, I have a big chip that would warrant, but it's Texas and unless it's obstructive, it's a waste of money. Any help?
