Wipper Blades

Wiper blades on my 2011 535xiGT have just begun to chatter/shake. Blades do not appear to be deteriorated. Is there a blade treatment or remedy, short of replacement, that someone has found to be effective? Normally my past bimmer wiper blades have lasted longer. Thanks!

the wiper blades are covered by BMW's $0 maintenance. go to the dealer and they'll replace them for you for free.

Replacing your blades is a good start.

Make sure your glass is very clean. Repeated cleanings w/ Isopropyl Alcohol

Next step would be to apply Aquapel or Wolf's glass guard. Both are much better then rainX.

There are a couple of glass cleaner products out there that are designed to remove the hard to dislodge acid rain and mineral deposits which would be a good start.
