Wipers is creaking no matter of the weather cold or warm, wet or dry. Tried Bosch different models, valeo, etc etc. Same thing. On the first day it started to creak (from bottom deadzone of the working cycle for a one second, and every cycle. On the middle it is quiet and on top as well)
2 years ago I've replaced windscreen, the brand is "shatterpruffe" And seems its low cost brand causes this creak? Could it be problem in that glass?

Heeeelp.??

Is it the wiper blades on the glass, the wiper arms springs changing arm angle over the sweep creating noise or some play in the linkage?

You could use a little spray lubricant on the wiper arm springs or some penetrating lube at the spindles (ideally a graphite based lube as would be used for lock barrels). Look for free-play or slight angle change of the spindles in their housings as wipers sweep or by manual manipulation.

These are things to check as wiper blades normally either screech or fish-tail.

The wiper linkage is courtesy of Fiat cost cutting and hardly a high quality item. Creaks are often normal which is why many people may use a high quality rain repellent (not Rain-X) to reduce use of that rubbish component.
