Hi,

just a very quick question, does anyone have noisy wiper blades? By that I mean do they squeak when there isn't much water on the screen - a rubber drag noise? I've got new ones, and they're still "squeaking"

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Hi, mine were very loud, then I changed to some Valeo Silencio wipers which are a lot lot better. Maybe using Rain X would help as well?

Hpe this helps,

Leon

Just changed my wipers to aero flatblade and they seem to be ok. Check out eBay as they're like £9 a pair, bargain!

I bought mine from Halfords (think they were Bosch), and they've never stopped squeaking - cleaned the window, cleaned the wipers etc etc, but nothing. It's embarrassingly loud when wanting to wipe your screen with people walking down the street.

I've just changed to the Bosch Aero BB450 blade, which I totally love. They are totally silent and wipes smooth everytime. Not cheap however .. I just spent $50 for the pair.

They apparently last longer, however when required to be replaced, I'd have to change the whole arm rather than changing of the rubber alone.
