Squeaky windshield wipers

If you hear squeaking, you are probably going to find it distracting while you are driving. You won’t be able to relax to music or focus on the road. Of course, you also should not ignore the noise because it’s a symptom that your wipers don’t work efficiently, are likely to fail, and may even cause damage to your valuable windshield.
