Hello

I need new wiper blades, measured them up at 22" and 21", however some online websites suggest they should both be 22".

What would you advise?

Thanks

Ben
I'm currently in the same process and looking at the PIAA ones as they seem to get the thumbs up round here. Currently running Bosch. I've downloaded the parts list from their website and the PDF is too hard to read on a mobile phone so not made progress.
The key is the curved blade on the passenger side as mine don't sit properly in the outer edge on the passenger side.

22" Bosche Aeros all round including the rear. You can bend the passenger side one to make contact all the way across. GT4 did a write-up on it somewhere.

OE are 22" and 21" curved.

Bosch Aerotwin look a bit aftermarket using the 997 'hooked' arm, raising it higher than the standard Bosch/PIAA etc. I preferred the flatter OE look.

Rear is also different. Might be the same size but fitment type is different.

Fitted the front two with no issues, went to back and the fitment wasn't right.

Came on here and just seen your post. The back is 100% different. Will need to return Bosch AR22U and order an alternative.

Thanks

I always use Frazerpart for the OE type Bosch ones - never had a problem

The marketing guff says between 6-12 months. I change them when the glass tells me to.

Usually every 3 years. I only do 8k miles a year and use RainX, so don't use my wipers that often.

I put them on my 996 turbo and they were excellent - really did work well. FWIW, as someone else here says, the driver and passenger side blades are different.

However... I tried to order a set for my daily VW Transporter and gave up after twice receiving the wrong type of fitting. Think you're safe with a 996/7 though.

I currently have PIAA, but TBH, haven't noticed any difference to Bosch.
