Land Rover Wiper Blade Problems

My wiper blades on automatic are very noisy. Dealer says thats the way it is. Does anyone have the same issue? (2006 LR3 SE7)
This discussion has been closed.
I just turn off the auto-wipe when the rain is too light.
Someone makes a replacement blade, Bosch I think, that doesn't have the squeaky problem and the newer OEM blades that came out in the last few months don't seem to do it either.
I have a 2006 LR3 whose rear wiper will not stop. It appears to be stuck at the intermittent mode. It's been annoying, to say the least. Any tips?
I've had great success with the "Bosch Icon" Wiper Blades for the front!
For the single rear wiper blade, Bosch makes the "Rear View" wiper blade!
The front blades have a swept look to them. They also look superior, (my opinion), to the stock blades that originally came with the vehicle. They are also infinately more quiet and do a very nice job.
The rear wiper blade has the familiar black metal arm and does a very good job.
Unfortunately, (for styling) the rear wiper does not resemble the front wipers at all. It would be great if Bosch could produce a rear wiper to resemble the front wipers. Until then, this has been a livable alternative to the factory original wiper blade(s) dilema. These wipers should easily retrofit for years 2005 through 2008. They are sold through Advance Auto Parts Stores. Incidentally, I had to inform the Parts Manager of the local Land Rover Dealership about them!
(p.s. Someone did say that these blades where the same style on the early & late 1950's Austin & Morris Mini's)
