How do I know my windscreen wipers size?
If you don’t have the handbook, the easiest way to measure your wiper blade is to simply pull your wiper arm away from your windscreen and use a tape measure. You can also remove the wiper blade itself and look for any manufacturers marks or information.
How do I know which wiper blades fit my car?
Windshield wiper blades come in many sizes, and chances are your car takes a different size on each side. Look in your car’s owner’s manual, measure the blade, or ask at an auto-parts store for the proper fit.
Can you put different size wiper blades on a car?
Size matters to a point, just as long as you are about 1 inch higher or lower than your current wiper blade size. If you buy wiper blades that are too big, they might overlap or touch which will cause them to break. For example, Bosch does not make 17″ wiper blades so buying a 16″ or 18″ blade is absolutely fine.
What are the most common wiper blade sizes?
Sizewise, you will find frames between 10 and 30 inches in length, with 20 to 22 inches being standard for most vehicles. The important part of a wiper blade is the rubber edge.
Are expensive wipers worth it?
Expensive wiper blades are better suited to the curved surface of the windshield and provide a better wipe than generic wipers. They are also noise-free and streak-free so there will be nothing to distract you when going around the sharp bend. They also remain consistent in all weather conditions.
Are front wiper blades different sizes?
In order to achieve the maximum space cleared, wiper blades are typically two different sizes depending on exactly where the wiper pivots are positioned. In some designs, the driver’s side is the longer blade and the passenger side is the shorter blade, and in other designs, it is reversed.
Are wiper blades two different sizes?
Windshield wiper blades are vehicle specific. On some vehicles, both wiper blades are the same size. On other vehicles, the two wiper blades are different sizes. The optimal wiper blade size is determined by the manufacturer and selected for proper fit to clear as much of the windshield as possible.
