- Windshield Wipers - Correct Size
I needed to replace my wipers recently, and did a search on this site. Couldn't find any clearly stated information, so I decided to post what I found out by calling the dealer the correct and exact scoop, and I'd like to share it with others...to save you time.
The wipers are different size:
The drivers side is as follows:
Metric = 400mm. Converted to inches = 15.74803
The center and passenger side:
Metric = 350mm. Converted to inches - 13.77953
I chose to use 16" Michelin wipers for the drivers side, and 14" ANCO wipers on the center and passenger side.
I bought these at Wal-Mart. I used some more expensive ANCO wipers that lasted a year before coming apart. I have rarely had wipers start to seperate, so thought I'd try a lessor expensive wiper and do a compairson test.
Also, found my original equipment wipers, and may just buy the rubbers for them next time and see how they hold up...
Any other advice on what wipers work best for you? I live in Texas, and we get some pretty exteme heat in our state. :sunny:
