You definitely don't want to hear a high-pitched squeaking noise coming from your windshield wiper blades. That is a sign that your windshield wiper blades need to be replaced. Windshield wiper blades are made out of rubber, and they aren't designed to last for a long time.

Windshield wiper blades need to be changed about every 6,000 miles. The rubber in the blades tends to deteriorate when it is very hot in the summer. When it is below freezing, the wiper blades can become brittle, too. Ice and snow can also damage the wiper blades.

If you notice that the windshield wiper blades on your vehicle aren't getting the windshield as clear as they should, you should get the wiper blades replaced. Your blades shouldn't smear the windshield or leave streaks behind. If you ever notice that your wiper blades are starting to fray or come apart, you should get them replaced immediately.
