Re: wiper blade problems
I know this thread is old but having similar problems too after replacing worn Renault wipers with cheapo blades I noticed them squeaking on driver's side only when the screen is wet mainly. Tried turning arm a little to no avail. Then bought Renault ones but these still make an annoying squawk when starting to wipe on driver's side - again when screen is wet. Am going crazy trying to remove the noise.
Driver's arm bearings look ok but the wipers do judder on when returning down and sounds like they are dragging heavily when dry with the other cheapo and older Renault ones. The driver's arm was replaced under warranty years ago and probably has around 30k or so on it.
Was thinking about changing push rods with some from wipex for £37 but not sure it that will fix anything. Just for info, have had problems of driver's side wiper hitting bonnet (at high speed wipe and raining) and had to adjust the wiper back a little but sometimes the passenger one knocks the driver wiper.
