yeah you hardly use the rear wiper that's why the rubber spoil already la. do you lift it up when you park under the sun or not?

Anyway to solve all your problems, get a wiper which uses silicon blades rather than rubber. I know 2 brand that uses silicon. 'Dura Edge' sells 1 piece for more or less RM20 depending on length. It comes with lifetime warranty, silicon blades. Sure no sound, no problem wan.

The other chun brand wiper i've seen is 'PIAA' it's made of carbon fiber for the whole thing and silicon blades as well. There's no lifetime guarantee here but the silicon blades can be refilled w/o buying the whole wiper. This wiper costs RM100 per piece.

I hardly use because its too rough afraid might scratches my windscreen.
The rubber might melt under the hot sun?

i actually turn on the rear wiper to let the car behind me to see the car infront of me :lol: , i still can see without using the rear wiper B)

Change your Wiper.. then Apply RAIN X

When applying RainX..
- Glass must be VERY Clean
- Apply RainX and let it dry to a Haze.
- Polish with Clean Cloth (I use Paper towels)
- Polish till no hazzy marks.

It only works that way.. Last time once I did not polish it properly.. Then went to Cameron Highlands.. The glass becomes like very very bad plastic. can only see one white layer...

Well, if you use the PIAA silicon wiper I was talking about, it coats the glass as it works so in the future your glass will be just like with rain-x. Rain droplets bead off easilly

It's called 'Dura Edge' I've never heard of dura ace before. I used Dura Edge before.
