Replacement windscreen wipers

Post by john002 » Thu Jul 12, 2018 6:20 am

Anybody know the made of original fitter VX wipers ?

Mine have gone rock hard in the baking sun we have had this May/June.

Or a suggestion for good wipers, please.

I'm kinda fussy on the wiper performance, my history was like this:

* new car, OEM wipers. They held for 1 year
* Got some valeo ones as a cheap option, can't recommend, visible lower performance than OEM,
* Changed Valeo within 1 month with OEM ones
* A year later, the OEM were again, less than perfect
* Put the valeos in place
* next month ... looks like OEM's are back in the cards.


You can try some Bosch ones, they usually get good marks. Just have to be careful on the size (26'' / 16'') and the clip-in system type

Thanks George.

Will look for Bosch with clip system , so it can be a straight swap

Hi, Costco is doing the Michelin Stealth wipers for about £7 each if that helps.
I've been very happy with them.
Cheers
