I bought two new front wiper blades Bosch Aeroblade, works a treat. Now the rear blade has ripped a bit so ordered a new rear blade. Has anyone changed theirs yet? Only ask as it doesn't seem to come off like the front ones.... Rather than using my meagre brute force and buggering it up I thought I would ask one you wise members.

Yes it just clips off,but a bit of force is needed.
You will see from the new blade how it fits.

My wife says that I never listen or something like that !

An update... Carpartsforless.co.uk sent me the wrong wiper balde, didnt fit wrong size... So I rang them, waited for 15 minutes.... got bored, emailed them, nothing back. I did the online chat thing and waited and waited then they just buggered off.. So DO NOT BUY FROM THIS CRAP company I have written off the £7 that I paid as a bad experience, a lesson learned. I cannot stand it when you cannot contact a company, yet the payments go through so easy... Odd that isnt it....

It's one of the bugbears of the modern age Volrider, internet shopping. I've lost count of the sites I've seen advertising Antara parts saying "Fits 2007 - 2015 models". Don't you know there's a massive difference between the Series 1 and the Series 2?

If it's any comfort to you the Toyota garage fitted the wrong rear wiper blade to my wife's car when it was in for a service. It doesn't exactly inspire confidence does it?

Nothing to beat having a motor factors locally where you can take the old part down and physically compare it to the part they're selling you. I've heard numerous cases, however, where aftermarket sensors eg MAF, MAP, Cam and Crank sensors just don't work right on various models of car. You're actually better off buying a 2nd hand genuine OEM sensor than a cheap pattern one.

Did you pay through paypal? If so, raise a case.

Don't forget to say that you are quite happy to return the wrong item sent to you. if they send you a returns label so you don't have to pay return postage as it's not you fault they sent out the wrong item
