Replacement Wiper Blades

Postby Lancer1993 » Sun Apr 21, 2019 7:15 am

Whats the best wiper blade you have bought?

I got some plastic blade Repco ones about a year ago and for much of that time the drivers side one tends to drag water back over the window on the down stroke.

Yes I've cleaned them and and screen but it still happens, the smaller left one seems to be okay.

Happy Easter!

Did see pricing and you're looking at about $50-60 for the pair, which I don't consider too much, the Repco branded ones I have cost about that 12 months ago.

Looking online Repco and SCA don't seem to have them, is it worth ordering online elsewhere?

Ok just called Bursons here in Caloundra and he said they are about $25 each, so either he got the wrong price or SCA is charging way too much?

I've also got the Bosch areotwin. Has the euro look over the stock wipers.

Not sure if I got them from sparesbox, but I've got other stuff from them before. I've never had any issues with them:

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Bosch-Aerot ... 2956656978

The set like you said is $50

So yeah, SCA is charging too much. Probably aimed at those who need the item immediately and therefore don't care how much it costs.

The Repco ones I've got at a similar 'area' design, there are many like it. I did see a pair of cheap ones on eBay for less than $25.

I'll check them out tomorrow, maybe the blade on my current ones got damaged somehow, or just wore weirdly?

Haven't tried the Repco ones, so not sure if it's quality or environmental :|

Got them, will install later but yes they were $25 each and when I went to SCA (for something else) I ask and no they don't stock them, maybe some stores do and you can get them online but not my local SCA.

When ordering the Bosch AreoTwin online just make sure you get the right ones, most of the brands usually come with multi connectors but the Bosch AreoTwin doesn't.

Will put them on tomorrow.

I'm still having an issue with my new Bosch AreoTwin, I'll try and take a photo or video (while parked) tomorrow to better show what is going on.
