Disassemble and lubricate the shafts/bushings where they come thru the body. 
Unfortunately, to get to these parts, you have to take a lot of things out 
first.  You'll have to remove the radio and the fresh air box before you can 
get to, and remove the wiper motor and frame as a unit.

This may seem alike a royal pain, but there's some advantage to it in that it 
allows you to reach up into the air vent plenum from below and clean out all 
the leaves that have collected there.

Once the wiper frame is out, you can take it apart and remove the shafts from 
the bushings. Clean everything up, and pack the space in there with a good moly-
loaded grease. This is a long term cure and should last you for the life of the 
car.
