Arrow Wiper Blade Chatter - Crown Victoria 2000

I have wiper blade chatter. No my blades are not worn but they are not the curved new style blades. Is there any new wiper blades (curved new style) that would stop this from happening? If it is not the blades themselves causing this what would be the problem?

Two thoughts - first, how do you know that they are not worn and second, heat and sun can dry and stiffen the rubber, also causing chatter.

I have noticed that wiper blades no longer last as long as they used to. The rubber gets harder quicker causing the blades to just chatter.

I've switched over to Rainex blades and have had excellent results.
My second choice is Anco premium.

Watch this video on “Wiper Blade Chatter”.

Mini Cooper Wiper Blade Chatter, DIY Repair - YouTube

The car in the video is a “Cooper Mini”, but what is being said about wiper blade chatter, and the resolution for it applies to all cars.

Thank You

I didn't check the video, but hopefully it includes cleaning the windshield. Rain-X'ing the glass may help, too, in addition to any other fixes.
