Wiper length.

Post by dripa on Wed Jul 24, 2013 4:27 pm

My 2004 1300 EFI Hijet seems to have short wiper.. well I think they are short.

My drivers side is fifteen and a half inches (40mm) and passenger is twelve and a half inches (32mm)

Can someone confirm the proper length.

Cheers Paul

Driver's side 16"
Passenger side 15"
Rear 13"

Passenger side can increase to 16" and will stop just short of the rubber windscreen surround so no more; driver's side will probably increase upto 18" without fouling if you so desire.

18 inches is what I was thinking of, as the existing 15 and 1/2 just seems to leave a 2 inch gap to the top of window...
They sell 18" in the pound shop so I blow the budget and get one to see if it fouls at all..

Thanks for the advice Bushwhacker..

They're on offer again this weekend. Will the Bosch blades take replacement refills? What about the vistapro ones?

Good spotting PFM.....think I'll get some more Bosch ones SmileSmile  .

At those prices, it may be just as cheap to buy the whole assembly than just refills.

I bought the Bosch ones because they're Bosch.....got to spoil the van now'n'again eh!
