Hey all,

Noticed the other day that my wiper blades are almost due for replacement,
so I dropped in to the local auto spares and learned that it would cost
me $22 JUST for the right hand side refill
(the right hand side being longer and therefore a different refill and not interchangeable),
and that wasn't even the Ford price.

Anyone else with an FG replaced wiper blades recently?

$22 bucks seems a bit steep IMO just for one side....

Only had the car for 6 months, would probably expect a bit more
life outa them than that :s

Cheers,

Josh

I paid $50 for a set for my car and mine's an EL. But I bought the flex ones or whatever they are...do a great job compared to the old school ones which have the refill option.

AH Astras the genuine wiper blades cost you $90 for both sides
