Wipers

Post by Miteshthanki » Mon Mar 11, 2019 7:53 am

Hi all,

My 🌵 turned 3 on Saturday!

Had the MOT last week and it failed on wiper blades. Had to fork out £30 for the replacements.

Anyone know if the wipers are available through non-main dealer channels?

I think you're better off with genuine ones anyway, not that I've seen 3rd party options. I paid £31 delivered - see this post - viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3584&p=26663#p26663

At a tenner a year it's not the worst thing to worry about on a car that depreciates so fast in it's early years.

I'll say it again. I love economical motoring, saving fuel, cheap Chinese tyres, keeping expenses down to a minimum but what I don't skimp on is the servicing. A good oil change, change of filters, everything which is mechanically required. The car never breaks down.

Wipers are a necessity but you don't have to spend an astronomical £31.00. This is just wasting money. I don't care what some readers say. You can buy the rubber replacement for about £2.50 (24in rubber) and thread it yourself. I have done exactly that and guess what?? They are still wiping fine.
