Did you replace them with stock wiper or did you go for the longer H253 blade.

I replaced mine and got the larger H253 so now the visibility out the rear window is improved.

bit of a silly question but you only mean replacing the rubber blade with H253, right? not the entire rear wiper assembly?

Not the actual arm, just the wiper part.

Yes, it's the wiper blade for the Astra J but it fits fine on the rear window and gives a bigger wiping area. Changed mine to this when the rear one wore out and it's a definite improvement.

Exactly. I did this also, not because the old wiper blade was broken, but because i came from a Zafira B, with a large rear window and a larger wiper swing.

Felt almost claustrofobic, with the tiny "hole" the original rear wiper would clear.
