Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: Windshield wiper blades
If your windshield is not clear after using the windshield-washer or if a wiper blade chatters when running, wax or other material may be on the blade or windshield. Clean the outside of the windshield with a washer solution or a mild detergent. Your windshield is clean if beads do not form when rinsing with clear water. Clean each blade by wiping it with a cloth soaked in a washer solution or a mild detergent. Then rinse the blades with clear water. If your windshield is still not clear after cleaning the blades and using the wiper, replace the blades. CAUTION Worn windshield wiper blades can damage the windshield and impair driver vision.

Make sure the wiper blades contact the glass; otherwise the arms may be damaged from wind pressure If you wax the surface of the hood, be careful not to let wax get into the washer nozzle D .
