Just put your reg number in on amazon and it will tell you which ones are correct.

Go for genuine Ford ones again tbh, Bosch Aerotwin quality has declined massively over the last few years.

Can usually pick them up cheap enough on eBay or amazon.  I paid a fiver on eBay for a brand new genuine VW set for the Golf in Jan 2019. :biggrin:

I intend to go for like for like again and get the genuine Ford ones. I'm a snob, and just love the white 'motorcraft' logo. Yes, I'm a very superficial man LOL

Get Valeo Silencio Flat Wiper Blade Set Vm411 you can't go wrong euro car parts and use the discount codes advertised. Rear is 350 not 450 but can be bigger if desired.

Just a heads up for anyone looking to replace the blades on a mk2 Focus. 
 

These ones on eBay for a tenner are pretty good quality, very smooth and quiet and so far seem as good as the genuine Ford ones they replaced (before the Ford ones wore out). https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FOCUS-MK2-04-ON-AERO-FLAT-WINDSCREEN-WIPER-BLADES/220737754886?pageci=08bbf24d-d66c-4a5d-ba97-9e3e1e277262
 

I’m not usually one for skimping and buying cheap Wiper Blades (I hate any juddering or squeaking) but these have very good reviews so I took a punt and so far they seem as good as the reviews say. Even if they don’t last quite as long as the genuine Ford ones, for a fraction of the price I won’t complain.
