Re: Windshield Wipers

I just replaced mine with Rain-X wipers. They're working fine so far. I tried the Trico "Exact-Fit" wipers, but they were an "Exact Fail". The channel that the wiper arm fits into is too narrow.

I've been using these for years as well. Not cheap, but they go like gangbusters, especially with snow. I replace mine every 6 months, earlier if they start streaking.

When I start getting a little streaking from built up road grime, etc., I use some isopropyl alcohol to clean the blades. It helps extend their life a little, but one full year in my climate pretty much kills them.

Re: Windshield Wipers

I continue to experience good success with Costco wipers at $10 each (Canadian), replaced every 7 months or so. (They could last longer, but I like to replace things early.)

Re: Windshield Wipers

If you go to the link I posted earlier in this thread it gives you the size and part number of the blades.

I find that cleaning them with 91% isopropyl using a mapp torch blanket or other MILD abrasive cloth, followed by another wipe with an old towel can cut down on the streaking a lot as they get old.

Wasn't there a thread about a year ago about non-matched wiper blade lengths on the GC?

The safest method is to measure your blades before buying.

Re: Windshield Wipers

Over the past 18 months the Bosch Icon has become more widely stocked by the chain parts stores. Many have a little digital thingy on the rack so you identify the exact length and curvature by vehicle year and model to pick.

Re: Windshield Wipers

I replaced my wipers yesterday with the Icon suggested here, exact fit, very happy with them, now I guess I need some rain to try them ?...I know up north the weather is not good, here its summer and having sun all day long, here is a quick pic taken this morning after I washed my GC.
