Front wiper blades fixed price

Post by berapotter » Tue Aug 07, 2018 3:28 pm

It's posted elsewhere,
Citroen and Citroen Main Dealers are doing fixed price on service items
Great news is it includes those very expensive front wiper blades
The price £29.99 for the pair fitted👍
Even if you only think you might need a pair, now may be the right time!

I've invested in an eco-cut hoping it extends the life of my wipers for abit longer than usual

Front wiper blades fixed price £30.. EASY FIX

Post by Rubik » Sat Sep 29, 2018 3:12 pm

Silly price is £30 incl VAT for wiper blades. The only place they can be acquired from is a dealership.

Problem SOLVED. Replace the blade yourself. Takes about 20 minutes.

Look on eBay and buy 24 inch blade replacement for about £2.50 including delivery.
Take off the worn wiper blade assembly off the car, remember to carefully remove the washer pipe from the bottom.

At the bottom of the blade is a retaining clip, remove this with a pair of snipe nosed pliers. Pull the blade free of the blade arm.
Carefully insert new blade and when its fully home, insert the retainer clip about 5mm from the end and pinch it up with the pliers.
Insert it back into the blade arm and the other 5mm of blade in the gap left, job done. £2.50 :D :D

Have a look at the pic of my finished re-insertion. p.s the blemish at the end of the blade is residual lubricant.

Great, if you`re happy with a £2.50 piece of obviously low cost rubber clearing your screen, then go for it. Me, I`m quite happy to pay what I consider a reasonable price (including the fitting faff), for an OEM part, backed by a 12 month guarantee from the manufacturer :D

I remember doing the blade swap routine on a previous car - had bought cheap replacements which still left smears after fitted (they were all plastic), so fitted the blades into the old metal arms, much better. Now prefer decent makes as they last longer, usually Bosch, and they cost £15-£20+ for a pair.

So £30 for wipers from a dealer, fitted, probably doesn't cover their labour charge, Is that fora front pair or per blade?

Anyone ever tried Ecocut?

Front pair and yes the dealer said they were being forced by Citroen to sell them below cost.

Very good news. Often you get fixed priced servicing plans for new cars whilst under warranty - good to see a manufacturer looking after customers with such offerings.

Price is a rip-off (£30) from dealership.

Very easy indeed to remove the whole blade assembly and replace, not even £5's worth of labour charges.

Have faith in yourselves, buy a replacement rubber £2.50 and replace it yourself saving you £27.50.

I have done just that, it wipes perfectly with no smears whatsoever from top to bottom. See the pic which shows 4 wipes clearing water.
