Windscreen Wipers
« on: October 29, 2015, 14:14:18 PM »
I really need to replace the passenger and rear wipers on my car. Having contacted a few people I am somewhat confused. One tells me that the front and rear wipers are the same and the other that they are different (their front ones were dearer). When I popped outside just now to check they look identical. So are they the same or different?

To add to the mix I was told according to the registration number my Callie is an Astra! Where does this data come from? When I was looking for insurance on a Carlton saloon I was told it was an estate!

Why don't you try the rear on the front then you'll know for sure!! The drivers has the wing on it, though this can be swapped over....

On close examination they looked identical so I got two new blades from the closest motor factors, Milehams, who had said they were identical. They are now fitted on the front and the drivers one on the rear.
