Front wiper blades
« on: March 31, 2014, 09:03:05 pm »
Hi all,
Im trying to get wiper blades for the front,i have purchased two sets now,(euro parts & Halfords) both would not sit right on the pins and were very wobbly.
The ones on there now fit perfect in the pins.The solid part of the wiper is about 5 to 6 inches long and fit perfect.Can you buy the blades only.
Thanks

I think the O.E blades are Bosch which I believe you can buy from GSF, they also sell strips of blade rubber- see here.

mine had straight bosch on, after a few years tried champion (crap)  now using curved bosch blades (not the flexy aero type).  seems the blades are unique to the car as the fitting hole ??? is an odd size so you cant buy ordinary blades to fit.  next time I will see if I can get the plain looking bosch again.

Hi not sure if this will help but I get mine from eBay £12 a pair but you have to find ones with a 12mm hook. Hope this helps you or somebody else.
