Same issue here. Was fine for a while then recently started chattering. Very annoying!

It's definitely a VANOS problem.

The wipers that they install suck.

I used the 303 treatment and improved. Will scrub the windshield and apply rain x, but the rain x didn't do it for me in the past.

After some use, it gets better though.

Chatter is not from the wiper blades. It's caused because the small metal clips that hold the blade are not evenly spaced or spaced too close or too far apart.

Simply slide the clip up or down on the blade and test it. Eventually the distribution of the clip on the blade will be balanced and the wipers will not chatter.

So I finally ordered a set of the Bosch Icons and I am really impressed. No chattering in light and heavy rain.

Wipers really suck. I scrubbed and "clayed" the glass. Still chattering. Will try the "distribution" thing and if not will just get valeo or bosch

Don't buy a damn thing. Just clean the windshield with 70% rubbing alcohol. Old school trick.

i kind of like the chattering. gives the M more character.

my problem with my wipers is not the blades. when the wipers cycle, it looks like the wipers are at the end of the cycle and then they are like but wait... theres more, and they violently smash down into their resting position.

So I'm thinking I should get some new wipers, ah-aha, Bosch ICON's. The thing is I'm torn!

Should I pay the extra $3.99 and get it on Tuesday, june 5th or, should I ship it via Prime and get it on Tuesday, june 5th?

Attachment 700588

Funny how they screw up with two day and one day shipping at the same time lol.

just wondering if anyone else has tried the 303 windshield wiper treatment?
http://303products.com/index.php/win...treatment.html

i checked with them,it's the the same formula as the 303 protectant,just comes in a one-use pack with an applicator.i just got my last free blades,which i think retail for about $80/pair,so it seems worth a tiny effort to make them last longer.

Anyone use these Icons yet? I just installed mine (didn't take that adapter part off), it doesn't seem to fit snugly, there's a little bit of play. Did yours fit okay and wipe with no issues?
