Wiper size?

Post by Raggy on Wed Mar 02, 2016 12:08 pm

Have what I think are the standard wipers on Skylark but the passenger wiper at least looks tiny. Had a look with a tape measure and I think I could get away with 18" drivers and 16" passenger blades. Anyone chnaged their blades for larger ones or will larger blades just prove too much for the motors?

Dunno about larger sizes. I went for 16" driver side and 15" passenger which I guess is standard. Off the top of my head, I think you could get away with longer ones fitting when sitting horizontally but I'm not sure whether the driver one might bump over the window seal when at full wipe? from memory the edge of the wiper goes quite close to the screen edge.

I got these ebay ones - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/16-15-RETRO-FIT-AERO-FLAT-FRONT-WIPER-BLADES-Daihatsu-Hijet-1992-ON-/310351053415?hash=item48425d4267 and they are doing a perfectly good job and were pretty cheap.

18" / 16" combination works perfectly well. I think the driver's side could go upto 19" without difficulty.

From what I remember when I last measured, the rear could probably go upto about 20" but I have lost the note I made.

I put much bigger ones on mine, can't remember what size, but they wiped right to the edge of the screen
