Replacement Rear Wiper Blade

Post by Discorus » Sun Dec 17, 2017 11:08 pm

Finally got round to swapping out my stock front wiper blades for the Bosch ones and wow, what a difference.
Now, I'm looking to do the rear one, but for the life of me cant find anywhere that gives me / lists a replacement that will fit.

Does anyone happen to know the Bosch or equivalent model number? Thanks!

Hi Discorus, and welcome

I can't help you with the Bosch code for the Astra blade, but I replaced arm and blade with the Insignia Sport Tourer model, it is longer and gives a far larger sweep area.
In my opinion the OEM looks too small on the rear screen of Astra and this change fits perfectly (Hatch only) can't comment on ST
Once you change to the Insignia arm, you can find a Bosch blade.

Found the thread:

Unfortunately the pictures have gone because they were uploaded some time ago.

Hi

The pictures have probably gone as they were uploaded to PhotoBucket who earlier this year changed their terms so that any external direct linking to images required the owner of said images to pay £400 a year fee.

Thanks all. Long time lurker, first time poster.

I'm tempted to do the insignia arm upgrade at some point in the future as it is like looking through a porthole at times.

For now I've just got find somewhere that actually stocks the blade. Who'd have thought it'd be this hard to replace a bloody wiper blade.

It's just strange that there aren't any replacements available, not just Bosch. I've found one 3rd party one buried away on ebay, but based on the picture it's clearly not for the K. I begrudge paying through the nose for genuine wiper blades.
