A few months ago my fiance's cars windshield wiper wasn't working, I looked at it and the bolt was loose. I tightened it down and put loctite on it. It recently went into the dealership for an oil change and I just got the reminder to go check my work (make sure the bolt was still tight). I pulled the cap off that covers the bolt and there was a clear Vaseline like grease in there that I don't remember putting in there. I checked the other wiper and it had it too. Is that a normal thing to put on wiper bolts?

My guess is it's dielectric grease to prevent corrosion. Also, was there rust in the pivot area? Sometimes you add grease there to improve the pivot ability
