Re: Need new wiper blades

I replaced the wipers on my 2013 Leaf in March. The old ones looked like they were the originals that came with the car. These are what I put on, and they seem to work very well (it doesn't rain much here).

I do this for my Prius and it is crazy cheap vs buying the rain-x blades. Just slide out the rubber, remove the metal stiffeners, and do the same in reverse for the new ones.

Are you kidding me? How long has it been since you bought blades...nobody sells those anymore. You HAVE to buy the whole thing.


PIAA still makes and sells refills ( http://www.piaa.com/store/c/72-Wiper-Refills.aspx )
Silblade does not, but claims 5 year life: http://www.silblade.com/
Or measure the width of your the rubber (generally 6mm or so) and hit eBay for bulk rubber strips.

Blades or refills for a 2017?

Thu Dec 21, 2017 3:50 am

The fitment guides (Bosch, etc.) I've looked at don't mention 2017 models. Am I stuck buying at the dealer?
