title explains it all. will EB2-ED wiper arms go on a EB1? i know the windscreens are different.

the reason i asked is i'm sick of the wiper blade plastic bushes wearing out and making my wiper blades judder across my windscreen. so i though i'd get some of the VE style blades. but supercraps reference list the VE style blades to suit EB2-ED but not EA-EB1.

so if the EB2-ED ones fit i can get the VE style ones for my car. if not i'll be stuff with s**t wipers

cheers

I bought the replacement bow bits that clip on the ends of the arms.

They work great on my EB1 Wagon.

Oh I wondered why my wiperblades were skipping even with new blades.
The VE style. Is it just a different shape/look or does it perform better aswell?

Repco have a replacement wiper blade assembly that clips onto your EB1 wiper arm, should sort your issue out. Probably the RCB22 or RCB24, can't remember off the top of my head. My eb2 Ghia was having wiper issues even after changing the rubbers, changed the blade assembly & issue resolved, I can also use the ttr610-20(iirc) wiper inserts now, rather common on modern vehicles, no more plastic backed crap.

i know i can get the replacement mechanisms but the one on it now is painted in high gloss black. if i replace them they'll be the s**t looking grey. ToranaGuy you should heaps look on your Repco catalogue and get me part numbers for the VE style blades to suit EB1 :)

ROFL. I think the VE style are RFB##, but not sure if you can fit them to a EB1 or not.
