Rainex. And a slight bend of the wiper arm. Worked for me on both 159s.

Double check that it is not fouling the bonnet, could be changing the alignment of the blade.

+1 check the top edge of the bonnet.
I thought I'd gone back to the 80's and was experiencing "wiper slap" turned out to be the worn linkage issue (do a search).
Short term solution = fit 16in blade not 18in
Imminent fix = Ned at Autolusso (together with his other goodies PF/braided/Powerflex) on Monday
Can't wait

Or make sure you've got good blades - just fitted some Bosch aero ones, great wipe and totally silent, vast improvement on the cheap ones I tried before. You get what you pay for I guess!

Change them frequently, at each season change. Forget about expensive ones, it's just marketing! Cheaper sets will do the same job nicelly. Also check if the wipper arm moves or wobbles separately from each other, and confirm the bolts are fitted tight!
