What recommendations does anyone have on windshield wiper replacements for the Alpine? Mine is a 2005 if that makes a difference.

I highly recommend rubber wiper blades. The steel ones last much longer but leave streaks.

They have to be STAINLESS STEEL or they will rust.

Ted- Try pulling up an old thread on wiper replacements. I remember that it was a lengthy discussion and a lot of suggestions were made, along with brands, part #'s, and good places to buy them.

Norm, I have considered the rubber blade style, not so much for the streaks but the noise is like fingernails on a chalkboard. I often wondered if ther was supposed to be something in those little slots.

Glad to see and hear that you are still alive. I would suggest some type of food for the coyote as he truly looks awful. From what I read I would avoid the Chinese food although that could be extremely difficult. On the other hand it could be a blessing in disguise!

Danny,did you just match the length or did they have different rubber styles. What I am trying to say is there a better or worse type?
