Windscreen wiper blades – expensive or cheap?
Firstly before you replace them get some old newspaper, and give the windscreen a good rubbing , or use toothpate,to remove grease road crap etc.Then wash with warm water.
next take out old rubbers and turn then round, so the top is now the bottom.
also when you lift the arms, put a towel on where the arm will come to rest on the screen if it springs back, a neighbour a few years ago had his flick back without the wiper rubber on, and it cracked the screaen.Posted 5 years agoCountZeroMember
I used to just get cheap blades, which would start to judder, and smear pretty quickly, so I bought a set of Halfords flat blades, which were more expensive, but have lasted really well, are silent in operation, and clear the screen really well after eighteen months or so.Posted 5 years agorickmeisterSubscriber
Bought some from Tesco with the aero shape. Fitted easily and worked pretty well.
Been on less than 6 months and the plastic connection to the wiper arm had gone brittle and fell apart. More importantly, so did the other on the way back from the Puffer at 60mph in the rain. Fortunately the wiper arm didnt carve the screen up.
Learning from this is metal fittings, not plastic which seems unable to handle the weather and cold. I would go for a metal one first then cost…Posted 5 years agobutcherMember
Last couple of times I’ve bought wiperblades.co.uk own brand aero wipers. They’re spot on, run silently, and generally do the job well. I’ll buy again when I need more.
They’re on the expensive side of your £1.50 to £15, but massively cheaper than other premium aero blades.Posted 5 years ago
