Wiper blades, what size?

Post by MartinSS1 » Sat May 18, 2019 8:41 pm

GSF provided me with twin 15", clearly nowhere near. Measured the old ones as drivers 19", passenger 18". However there is a gap down the middle of the screen the wipers don't reach, so that's not right either.

What should they be?

20" N/S and 21" O/S is what i think is on ours , not sure if that is correct :?

My car is a single-wiper one, so I don't know the exact answer, but I thought something in the 15 or 16 region was the original size on twin-wiper cars? I may be wrong though?

That sounds about right. Any chance you could measure them for me? Don't want to buy a 3rd wrong set ideally!

I do know i went up a size or two to make sure top edge of drivers screen was being cleaned :wink:
