Thumbs up noisy wipers

quite a common happening, most of this problem is caused by not enough freeplay in the rubber blade to metal claws holding it in place, the blade needs to be a free slide in the arm, and enough clearance at the end to enable the blade to curve propperly, i recently went and bought 2 new complete blade replacements, thats wiper blade with rubber already inserted, bosch brand, cured the noise straight away. those ones that are sold as multifit, ie 6mm and 8mm width, dont do your wiping anygood, u should be able to see the blade flip over as it changes direction, to check that action, with wiper going, turn off key as it gets to the end of its wipe, then back on, the blade should flip over, if not, its trying to wipe with the rubber facing wrong way, hence the noise
