Is it just me or do the stockers simply SUCK. both fronts and the rear just chatter wet or dry and dont do anything in winter climate.

What are any of you guys running as alternates?

replacements are 24"/19" up front and 13" out back? (didnt go measure - its -20*C and windy so im lazy) and the manual is in the glove box.

FYi - check out Slickdeals.net - they describe a rebate for the neoforms.

BTW - what sizes did you get ? I couldn't find a neoform for the passenger side.

My manual for a 2010 Terrain has listed 24"(60cm) for drivers and 16.7"(42.5cm) for passenger
Purchased exact fits at Wal-mart 13 dollars a blade

I found out something really weird today. If you put the car in neutral, the rear wiper won't operate but the front ones work. Wonder why?

Its because the rear window it getting dirty when driving. If the wiper is running on a near dry surface it will force the motor for nothing. Its a smaller motor for the rear wiper.

Never thought about it like that. Definite possibility. But it's neat that it does it.

Ok, I have a Nox, but I found the fronts were noisy during the first rain. But at some point during the first 20 minutes they quieted down to the point I forgot they had been noisy at all. Hopefully they'll stay quiet during the next rainstorm. My rear wiper hasn't made any noise that I noticed.

When I had the stock wipers on, they were also OK in a decent rain. Even when the windshield was
totally dry they were quiet. It's during a light rain with a damp windshield that they started acting up.
My rear wiper is also quiet at all times.

I'll have to watch out for that, I haven't driven it in a light rain yet.
