    what brand of blade are they and how old are they? Might just either be cheap blades or have hardened over time. My brother put bosch Icons on his goat and loves them. The wipers on my firebird haven't been turned on in years and I couldn't tell you what blades are on my goat....probably rain x but they don't make any noise.

    I had an 02 z and they sounded like crap. the mechanism is terrible. I love the front defroster that only has a vent in the middle for the gigiantic windshield and the fan that blows as hard as a wave of a hand. poor engineering.

    Replacing the motor will be the easiest solution. I think it will cost you below $100 for the wiper motor.
