Re: Squeaky wiper blades

Try twisting the wiper arm just below where it meets the wiper blade. Place a piece of cloth over the arm and grip with a pair of pliers. Try this gently a bit at a time in either direction and see if things improve. You may have to make numerous attempts at getting it right though.

You can also buy silicon wiper blades which are more flexible and in my experience give less friction.
