wiper blades

Postby waxfreak » Mon Jul 23, 2007 2:51 pm

I just bought a 07 g35 sedan in January and had to replace wiper blades in May. Just after I got them from the dealer, the driver side wiper is leaving a wide streak mark. It looks like it's coming from the middle of the blade. I tried bosch wipers but the sizes were off. Need help!!

Any ideas for this or any good ideas for replacement blades that look the same?

I also replaced my stock wipers only after a few months. Horrible streaking. So I tried a different type, metal ones like I always used, but also after a month there is still terrible streaking. Ive tried cleaning the windshield very well but it just drives me crazy. At night when its raining I can barly see when the on coming trafics lights hit the streak and I get blinded. This is on a brand new 07. Does anyone have any sugestions? Maybe a better windshild cleaner will do the trick? I use stoner invisible glass. Seams that I just cant clean the glass because you can see water type marks all over it and when the blades swipe they only bring it out to see.

I bought some cheap ones for my 240 from Autozone...BAD IDEA. Long story short, i'll be switching to PIAA's wiper blades soon. I've heard good things about them.

(Note: They don't have the 07 G sedan application/info on their site)http://www.piaa.com/WiperBlades/WiperBlades.html

I used the Bosch Icon's. The sizes that I bought were correct for the drivers side, and an inch too big for the passengers. Even though it was too big, it doesn't hit the a pillar, of roof line, and is on the windshield through the whole motion.

They work AWESOME!!! Worth every penny. You can also look at silblade.com and see what they have. A buddy of mine swears by them, and although they are the same as the Icon's, the silblade has a 5 year unconditional warranty. I would have gotten them, but needed blades when I picked up the car, and couldn't wait a week for shipping.

For what it is worth, I have been using Wal-Mart's Michelin blades on all my vehicles for a few years and they have been very good. I will get them when the G35 needs some. They are made by Anco I think. Target supposedly has a little more upscale version but I have not seen them yet.

Depending on your local ozone and temperatures and acid rain levels change intervals can vary from 3 - 6 months.

When you visit dealer every 90 days for your oil change and inspections they should check and replace as needed if you remind them that you are a concerned owner.

Important to keep windshield clean and polished.

...speaking of rain-x, they do make wiper blades you know. I don't have them personally, but i do hear that they work wonders... If the product is all that, then those wiper blades won't leave any streaks...

rain-ex is the truth. solves all problems, plus i love watching water just bead up like there is wax on the windshield. most of the time i don't even use wiper blades because the beads will just fly off

Yeah, especially at 80 MPH & over you really don't need the wipers

well silblade doesn't have the right size for a 07 sedan. I think the drvr side is 22 or 23 but for sure the pass side is 15". Can't find that size for pass. I looked at piaa, but unsure cause you have to treat the window with a chemical.

Still looking............

You can use a 16" blade on the passengers side. It will not rub on the a pillar or roofline.

I use the bosch's like the guy above and although they were expensive (around 50 for the pair) they are incredible. I also use rain-x window cleaner and I have no trouble on any of my cars.

After looking for Wiper Blade Refills, (just the rubber refill) the local Dealer only had the hole blade, about $40 for the two! ouch! I need 26"/17" One Dealer gave me the Part #s for the rubber only, but they didn't match there web site!? Damn...Was in Costco today and they had GoodYear Hybrid Wiper Blade the hole blade was $7.99 each! The Blades are a little different but they look fine and they Work!
