Certain dash protectants cause a film to build on the glass. Avoid Armor All or those with alcohol base. Not only will they evaporate quickly, they can actually dry out seats and plastics, and leave a film on the glass, such as what you're experiencing on your windshield. Try a light coat of wax, then buff off to remove the residue/smears on the glass. It works.

You must have really loved that girl to allow her to smoke in a vehicle. That would never happen with me or my truck!

Whenever you change the size of your wippers does it make that signifacant a change? I'm thinking about doing this but I'm wondering if going to a 22", or 23" or some different kind of combo would make them caught up on one another or something like that. I think maybe I'm putting way too much thought into this. What do you guys think?

I've had 22" blades for over a year now, and I think that's what most people will tell you to use if you're going to buy a set. But the difference between 22" and 23" will be minimal at best. I mean your talking half an inch on either side..really not significant.

If I may give a suggestion.. the Rain-x Latitude blades are awesome!

Default Correct wiper blade size??

I have 22" blades that came on my 2007 screw. I went to Pep Boys and asked for the right size in a Rain-X Latitude and they said they should be 20".
Which size is right? The owner's manual doesn't list a size but the 20" seem too short.

Thanks...

defiantly go with 22" It will give you a bigger clearing area

That's what I planned to do but all of the wiper brand sites (Anco, Trico, Rainex, etc) say it's 20". I didn't want to damage the wiper motor or something by using larger blade than I was supposed to.
I'll probably take them back and get the 22" because that's what I have now and they do cover more of the windshield.

20's will work better...I bought the 22's and the whole blade does not contact the windshield..I will try 21's next time.
