    I live in N Texas and not a lot of rain here most of the year. When we do
    get rain the wiper blades on our van make a terrible noise except when we
    have a very very heavy rain.

    I'd appreciate any information/ideas on a manufacture and vendor for no
    squeak wiper blades for an 04 Dodge Caravan.

    i assume you've cleaned the blades themselves with Windex or some sort of
    glass cleaner, and they are making proper contact with the glass?

  3. I have had great luck with the premium blades on my Caravan:

    Trico NeoForm

    Bosch Icon

    RainX Latitude

    The common thread between all three brands is the "beam blade"
    engineering, plus a quality blade compound. They don't come cheaply,
    but are worth the investment. We don't get much rain here either, but
    when it comes, it's a major problem. Many extremely heavy storms hit
    in the local mountains also. They ususally don't last long, but they
    are intense at times.

  4. The blades I found to be the best are the TRIPLE EDGE SILICONE WIPER.
    Wal-Mart carries them. I have them on my PT Cruiser and my wife's

    Other blades would shudder across the window in a light rain. These
    blades don't. And the good part is, they're guaranteed for life.

    Short of Vaseline (which I *know* won't help from pranks as a kid) I've
    tried all sorts of 'stuff' nothing works well or consistently.

    I managed to speak to someone with Bosch support. Lot of good official
    information and some very interesting personal recommendations. I usually
    replace wiper annually as part of a preventative PM program but understand
    the Bosch Icon wipers should last 18 months to two years under the same
    plan. I expect the time limit has more to do with environmental degradation
    of the rubber than design considerations.

    Called the other two and waiting on a response.

    Will post the response and my resultant experience.
