May be time to replace them.

The rubber could have cracked, or ripped off in some places.

mine are noisey too. I have to replace them. You can get new blades at toyota for $3 a blade. The rubber gets dried out if you don't change them.

How old are your blades?

You might just want to clean them with something. (I use whatever I wash the car with, or windex, or whatever). Just spray 'em, wipe 'em, and try them out later.

Down here in Phoenix, wiper blades have to be replaced frequently, because of the hot weather. Up there in Canada, its not such a big deal.


300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.

are you guys talking about the whole blade assembly or just the rubber inserts? mine is noisy too. i change the inserts once every 3 months and it's alway noisy after i changed them. actually, we've 5 toyotas at home, all of them sounds like that, even my uncle's lexus RX300... thumbsdown

We probably have to change them more often. Winter weather is terrible for wiper blades.. I have to do mine every spring. The ice, snow and salt tears them up. thumbsdown
