NIGHTMARE!

Just tried fitting and it wont go, the plastic housing on the wiper adapter just doesn't look compatible.

Went for this for driver side - https://www.halfords.com/motoring/wiper ... 74352.html

Anyone got experience of fitting that model?

Thanks.

Ouch!! :shock: :shock: that's why they are called Halfrauds. That's a hell of a price for a single blade. You can get a pair of Bosch delivered first class for that price.

Bosch A532s are the right blades

No faffing around with different adapters either

I had the Bosch ones fitted by Halfords they made a horrible clicking sound when changing direction of sweep. They changed them FOC but still did the same they they said tension on the springs were to high. Went and got proper ones from Jag all perfect got full refund from Halfords

Don't bother faffing with the service/park proceedure as it can be done with them resting at the bottom of the screen
Can you explain the procedure please (even if it's not necessary)
