I got my red 2014 Leaf SV about 3 weeks ago and loving it so far! I came across an issue with the OE wipers last night. It was raining moderately and I was having a very hard time seeing through the windshield. Everything was hazy and the wipers just didn't seem to be clearing the water off the windshield very well. Also, there was a grating sound almost like there was grit on the windshield which I found out there is not. Even after cleaning the Windshield twice, I'm still having trouble which is a serious safety concern.
On my other car, I've been using PIAA Super Silicone Wiper Blades Refills (just the rubber blade) and have had an excellent experience with those. From what I understand, the silicone blades coat the windshield with a film of silicone that repels rain drops. In fact, there are times when I don't even turn the wipers on since the drops roll right off.
I've done a lot of searching and have not been able to come up a an answer. Will these blade inserts (refills) work on the Leaf?
If this brand/model does not work, can you guys advise me some some good refills? I do NOT want to replace the wiper assembly, just the blades.
Here is a link of the ones I'm looking at:
