    A few months back I bought new windshield wiper blades and windshield cleaner with a water repellant additive. Now there is a lot of friction between the windshield and wiper blades. It make a horrible squeaking noise and skips a lot. What the hell can I do?

    Smear Crisco all over the windshield!!!

    just kidding, but some suggestions from

    http://www.wikihow.com/Stop-Windshield-Wiper-Blades-from-Squeaking

    1. Clean the windshield glass with a product like Rain-X or Windex so that the glass will slick up and the wipers will glide more easily.
    2. Replace your windshield wiper blades often.
    3. Refill your windshield wiper fluid.
    4. Make your windshield wipers softer by putting a little WD40 on a paper towel and wiping the squeaking wiper blade with it.
    5. Sprinkle baking soda on a dry paper towel and rub it on your windshield's glass. This will remove any wax or other squeak-causing residue from your windshield.
    6. Clean the windshield with phosphoric acid (Coke) on really hard cases by letting it sit for a few minutes then rinsing it off with water.
    7. Check to see if your blades are too loose or too tight. This could be causing tension between the glass and wiper.

    New windshield - good. New blades - did you buy cheap ones? Are they installed upside down? On some models, it's possible to reverse them, unless one is larger. Typically, you should be able to read the brand/logo when outside the car, from the front of the hood. Lose the windshied treatment or wiper fluid additive. RainX is the only stuff that I've seen work. If applied correctly (not in sun, allow to dry, then wipe OFF completely) it actually beads the water off fast enough that you shouldn't need wipers, but only for about a week into rainy season.

    A lot of people buy Tri-blade wipers, thinking that much like your razor, the more blades, the better the job. BS. Buy the highest quality single blade system you can find. Should last you two seasons. It's a myth that you change them every year.

    Happy wiping! icon_razz.gif

    DO not do either of these two... number 4 will create a greasy mess on your windshield and it'll take months before you get it all. Number 5 most often results in sticky soda poured down the windshield and into your interior air intake. No, coke won't shoot out the vents, but sticky soda will grow mold and stink.

    4. Make your windshield wipers softer by putting a little WD40 on a paper towel and wiping the squeaking wiper blade with it.

    6. Clean the windshield with phosphoric acid (Coke) on really hard cases by letting it sit for a few minutes then rinsing it off with water.

    That Rain-X stuff is really great. Rain just beads up on your windshield and gets blown off by the wind. I never use my wipers anymore except in the hardest of downpours. Try that shit. It costs less than ten bucks.
