    It's usually the wiper linkage that squeaks. I don't remember if you can get to it from under the dash or though an access hole in the cowl. Getting old I guess! [​IMG] If it's under the dash, it's not easy, but you can see the linkage way up at the top. I use a bit of aerosol white lithium grease to quiet mine. WD-40 and the like don't last long enough.

    Disconnect the power to the wiper motor before you get your hands up in there. The wiper motor is strong enough to seriously injure a finger that gets caught in the linkage!

    I think you can get to the linkage from the cowl area by removing the black plastic leaf catcher screen.

    New blades in Oregon..........hmm, must be the rainy season approaching!
