Title: Wiper device for vehicles having mechanism for lifting wiper blade with less rattling noise

Abstract: In a wiper device for vehicles, a wiper blade is rotatably connected to a wiper arm at a holding axis. A slider unit is attached to the wiper blade at a position being shifted from the holding axis. A lifter is disposed at the vehicle body at a position where the wiper device is stopped and the wiper blade is concealed. The slider unit runs onto the lifter to lift the wiper blade so that the wiper blade may be rotated on the holding axis until the wiper blade comes in contact with the wiper arm when the wiper device is stopped and the wiper blade is concealed. An elastic element for absorbing noise such as rubber or sponge is disposed between the wiper arm and wiper blade so that the wiper blade comes in contact with the wiper arm via the elastic element when the wiper blade is lifted.
