Listen to the Signs

Have you ever been driving in the rain, and when you switch the lever to turn the wipers on, a nails-on-a-chalkboard-like squeal emits, bringing pain to your ears? On top of being extremely annoying, this squealing can create a distraction for the driver. It could also be a sign of an issue.

So why does this happen in the first place? Below are some common reasons your wiper blades may be squeaking.

  • Wiper blades need to be replaced
  • The windshield is dirty
  • Your vehicle has insufficient wiper fluid
  • The wiper blades and assembles are too tight or too loose
  • Products such as Rain-X or waxes are getting in the way
  • Wiper assembles are misshapen and need to be replaced

Check all the above and address any issues you find. You should also clean wiper blades regularly with an alcohol wipe to help them last longer and work efficiently. Keep your windshield clean, and have your vehicle tuned up every 10,000 to 12,000 miles.

If your windshield needs repair or replacement, find a reputable auto glass specialist in Chicago to get you back on the road as soon as possible.

I recently brought my car in to have the broken passenger window replaced. The guys at Frank’s were very professional and the prices were good compared to other places. I’d recommend to anyone. Thanks guys!

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Once again, frank’s auto glass came through. The price was exceptional the service was great, I would highly recommend anybody who needs class work, Should come here. I’ve done business with Frank and his family for many years, and I always leave satisfied. They don’t make them like this anymore. So five stars in Bravo.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
