Found wipers that fit the special "push button" wiper arm attachments on the outlook. Trico neoform beam blades direct-connect - no cheesy, ugly, plastic adapters like most aftermarket replacements. The wiper arm sits lower and there's less play in the attachment. Smooth, quiet, wipe-clean and priced fairly (much less than OEM at the dealer). Mainly an fyi...

I had a set of the Trico Neoform's before I replaced them with the Bosch Icon's--very good set of blades and I would have repurchased if my Auto Zone had the set in stock

Don't know if your a CostCo member but I found a much cheaper set of Goodyear wipers blades that work just as good. (Since its CostCo god only knows who actually makes the blades since I've never seen "Goodyear" blades anywhere else).

I swear by silicone wipers. I've used Silblades for years, but they were sold and the last set I got seemed of lesser quality. They don't carry blades that'll fit the Outlook anyway. They say they do, but I ordered them, and they don't fit and had to send them back. PIAA does in their http://www.piaa.com/WiperBlades/si-tech.html"]Si-Tech line[/url] and I bought those.

Silicone blades are a bit pricey compared to natural rubber blades, but they'll last about 4 years compared to 1 year or less for standard blades. Additionally, they coat the windshield with use like Rain-X so the water beads and runs off. Ironically, even the Rain-X blades don't do that. I can't tell you how much better visibility is in the rain when you can look between the beaded drops rather than through a film. Worth every penny.

Huh, that's interesting. It says it uses a 'coating' to apply the Rain-X. I wonder if they're natural rubber with a special coating or if they're silicone. Silicone will last a lot longer and I bet that coating wears off fairly quickly. Might look for them next wiper change.

Yes, I had to use a wipey thingy to put some solution on the windshield. It came with the new wiper.
Ah, with the PIAA silicone blades you don't have to, just change your wipers and see much better for the next 4 years. :thumb:

Can anyone help with suggestions for silicone wipers that will fit my 2007 Outlook?
I found the PIAA ones on Amazon but Amazon is telling me they won't fit my 2007.
I would prefer silicone so I don't have to replace them every year.
Thanks for the suggestions!
Chris
