Title: Wiper Arms
Post by: Tezerez on May 24, 2017, 02:48:58 PM
Does anyone else have difficulty buying wiper blades online due to the ends where the blade attaches to the arm being handed, rather than the same way round?
I have often sent away for bargains only to find only the drivers side fits. Not all are the same, but bought some in Asda lately and only used one ???

Can't you pop the little holder piece out and turn it around?
I've not yet replaced my wipers yet, but when I had a Clio a good few years ago, you buy the wipers & take out the attachment clip & turn it around & upside-down!

Sorry KingyMAK, I have 2 drivers side ones, but neither will pop off. One is a one piece molding,  the other is metal but pressed on by machine to clamp to blade. Will have to keep looking........ or pay more ??? :'(

Is the regular wiper blade style or the aero flat blade style?

With wipers (with me anyway) a cheap online one fell apart on the motorway so I only stick to Bosch or (if I have to) dealer but only front wipers.

Local motor factors are a lot cheaper than Halfords for example (saved 17 on the work berlingo 2015 btw)

It's the Aero flat blade type.
