    I have relatively new silicone wipers that never squeak on the other Blazers, but the Jimmy drives me nuts. I cleaned it with Windex and then with vinegar and water and it still does it. Cleaned the blades too!

    Rain-x the windshield. Even if it doesn't stop the squeaking, you won't be using your wipers nearly as much :grin:

    I use "Tripledge" or "Triple edge" they were "as Seen on TV" from Walmart, for me those were squeekless and pretty cheap too.

    i dont know about the silicone, but i refuse to sell the teflon crap.
    plain old rubber.
    and clean the windshield with newspaper and glass cleaner

    you could always wipe the blade down with alcohol

    rain-x the glass regularly and put some on the wipers themselves. it helps. "pam" or another cooking spray helps them slide. leaves a little residue, though.
