Hi

 

Would like a new set of wiper blades and have come across the Bosch aerotwin blades the only thing is I'm confused by the versions , one set has a multiclip and the other is just standard , as shown in link. so I'm not sure which I would need.

my car is a 60 reg focus mk2.5 titanium if that helps at all.

 

thanks

 

Mitch

You have my sympathy, changing wiper blades rarely ends up as being a simple job!

 

Without wishing to state the obvious, is it not possible to determine which are the ones you need by having a close look at the ones already fitted?

Thanks for that!  I nipped into my local stealers the other day - they wanted nearly £30 :o

 

Local motor factor was saying £23 for a pair of Bosch wicker-whackers

Personally I'd say stick to genuine ford so you'll be sure of the perfect size. The links I linked seem to be the cheapest about

 

Another good thing about the ford blades is they have a wear indicator on em that will gradually turn yellow so you know when they need changing

 

 

Think being buried in snow for over a day has started to change my wear indicator already

 

 

I was contemplating doing a guide on how to change the blades but there was really no point as it couldnt be more simple.. Take the old one off, put the new one on ;)

Just replace the rubbers its easy to do and cheaper than buying new blades all the time
