Squeaky Rear wiper
I have a 2010 Jeep Unlimited hardtop. Less than 2 weeks old. The rear wiper squeaks at the bottom of the stroke.This may sound stupid. It does it even when the window is really wet. I would say it was the wiper blade, but it only has 300 miles on it. Anyone else experiencing this?

Probably a cheap blade. You could try to rain-x the windows... always a good thing!

I was using RainX until I tried Invisible Glass that I got at my local Autozone or any other parts store will carry it. I don't know how it works but I have been super happy with it. After applying it, it just kept the glass really clean and the rain action I prefer over RainX because with RainX, the water beads but there is a different effect with Invisible Glass that somehow doesn't seem so interfering of my vision (maybe less beading?) during mist and mild rain while the wipers are on intermittent. This has made a HUGE difference while driving at night. Headlights and street lights catching the beads of water created by RainX in some driving circumstances made it extremely difficult to see the road. This doesn't happen with Invisible Glass. My wipers were getting streaky and the Invisible Glass seemed to restore them to like new regarding how the wipers seem to do a clean wipe every swipe. I used it to clean the wipers as well as the glass. And to the OP's point, they seem to glide over the glass effortlessly with no squeek or noise of any kind.

I'm going to pick some of that up and try it. Thanks!

Problem solved. Took it to the dealer. Seems the nut was too tight and causing a plastic bushing to squeal.

Excellent, I usually do ask the dealer to look into details that anoy me. Glad they were able to solve it.

When your wipers don't seem to be performing well try some of that Invisible Glass and see what you think. I don't know why I selected that one form the many products that were on the shelf at the parts supply shop but once I tried it I've been impressed with the results. I don't know if I'm going to use the remainder of my RainX product now that I like the Invisible Glass so much.

Happy Jeepin' :wavey:
