Back to my other problem lol.. I cleaned the windshield and then clayed it.. Wasn't to bad, a little dirt came off.. Cleaned the wiper blades with soap and water and then used alcohol.. Put rain-x on all the windows so I will see if that worked for now..

When you 'hook' it, you really have to push (?) the blade into position very firmly and it will make an obvious "click" when it's in place properly.
I doubt it, they click like all the other wipers I've ever put on.. I push them back and they stay on.. But as they are wiping it would come off.. Or if I would use some force they would come off, I put bosch ones on and use the same force and they don't budge, I just think they are made poorly

Coupe, Premium package, sport suspension
I just have to say I hate the RainX plastic blades. Dealer switched them out from OEM on me unrequested. They are bulky and inelegant and really mess up the everpresent clean lines of the G coupe. The OEM metal blades are sleeker and unobtrusive and as Gary said, the insert is high quality and durable. I'm also not a throwaway kind of guy so I'd rather replace just the insert as opposed to the entire plastic blade. I made them put back the OEMs.
