    I hate squeaky wipes, too. They drive me insane.

    I haven't tried this, but I've read that you can dry wash your windshield with baking soda. No water. Just baking soda and a dry paper towel. Sprinkle some on and rub it around with the paper towel. This supposedly removes any wax or other squeak-causing residue from your windshield.

    Good luck.

    Thumbs up

    Cut and paste the following into Google:

    "noisy windshield wipers"

    Then click the Groups tab. Lots of discussion and some good ideas there.

    That could be caused by too much pressure by the wiper arms springs.

    A buddy of mine told me about making windshield wipers softer by putting a little WD40 on a paper towel and wiping the wiper blade with it. Don't go crazy with the quantity of WD40.
    This really works.I tried it my self makes the rubber like new.
    Somtimes they get hard in the packet.

    You can wax glass also. Or apply Rain-X and forget about wipers.

    I have never tried this but I have heard that you could run an apple core across them.

    Hmmm, just coat your windshield with WD-40. That'll solve the sqeaking problem.


    Probably won't be able to see. But think of the benefits! They won't sqeak anymore.

    I'm sure the rain would slide right off too.. better than Rain-X!

    That was a suggestion of a friend of mines too Maybe it's worth a try

    WD-40.....A.....NO!Okay,maybe a little won't hurt

    They squeak all the time,unless they are frozen solid with snow and ice,and are new blades.

    Car wax is not a good solution, I have had wax on a windshield,and it smears bad,and amorall won't do either

    Maybe Coke will help

    hmmm Earplugs?
    I couldn't help you there, this is how bad I am. My van has the rear wipers and has its own fluid resivor adn kids kept telling me there is a buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, I had no clue. Finally it was driving my kids nutso so I asked my neighbor to come over and listen to my van. Turns out the resivor was empty and it shot the motor becuz of no fluid. ( i never used the rear wipers) and didn't know it was empty. So i had to unplug the sucker because when I tried to refill the thingy, um the wipers would not stop shooting water till the resivor was empty. Imagine driving down the street wih wiper fluid shooting all over the place from the rear of your rig till it runs dry! So much for being able to hear that. **Shrug** Wasn't a loss cuz I never used it in the first place. Only the front ones.

    So um earplugs might work.
