Neither Autozone or Advance Auto Parts show wiper blades on their
web site for a 2005 STS.
Has anyone replaced theirs, if so, where did you get them?
Thanks

All I have found is dealer only ($30) because they use a different mount to hold on the blades. I was told they are ICON blades which are about 20 each but none of them have the correct mount.

stick with the stock oem blades...they use the highest quality rubber and will last forever...in fact, it's surprising that you need to replace the original blades.

there are some basic maintenance items to w/w blades: clean the wiping surface whenever the car is washed. if the wiping action is reduced and the w/w is "streaky" when they're used, take a an exacto knife or a razor blade knife and run the blade over the wiping surface a few times.

with that minimal maintenance the blades should last a long time, much longer than anything that autozone sells.

My blades started squeeking after 15 months or so. I mentioned it to the service writer at my dealer when
I was getting an oil change and they replaced them for free.
