Here's an interesting fact about TL wiper blades.
Back in 99, there were a lot of complaints about TL blades skipping across the windshield, so they replaced them with a different type of blade.
The wiper blade inserts on the 2000 and up TL contain graphite, so that they glide across the windshield more easily. The downside is that they seem to get dirty more quickly.
Little tip, take some glass cleaner, spray it in a paper towel, and wipe the edge of the blade, and don't forget cleaning the spot on the windshield where the blade sits. Just give it one or two wipes, because of the graphite after that it will still appear somewhat dirty, even though it may be clean.
