Buy the rubber refills at the dealer. They're $5 each.

Unless you threw out the original blade holders, in which case new ones are
$40 each and come with new rubbers.

Try scrubbing the windshield to remove any wax or build-up. You could
also apply Rain-Away or similar preparation.

Tried the dealer ones. No luck.
Noise comes when the blade "flips" over at the direction change.

Did you clean the windshield and the blade rubbers with Windex after
installing the dealer refills?

Are you trying to operate the wipers on a dry windshield?

The only solution I have found is to buy original Acura/Honda blades or
refills and to change them every 6-12 months.

I use the Reflex wipers from Canadian Tire. They're fantastic.
