    **floppy aero wiper blades ** SOLVED

    well sort of - you'll get my drift

    had 1st set arrive in today after badgering the poor sod for months and seems to be sorted in a fashion

    got the list off him as these are from another dealer/manufacturer than my 1st priority but thought in the name of SCN i'd give it a go to see what the crack was and read along to see a few vehicles listed that i knew of and could confirm that they did indeed have the same style loop end as the Ibiza

    problem 1 - size listed as 600/400 as a pair - well as my ibiza had 460/540 i ordered em anyway thinking a greater drivers would improve the clean area my side anyway and worse scenario could trim it anyway

    got the kit in (77 11 236 179 - Renault part no) and thought OOOH looks spot on - on closer inspection noticed that they are exactly like the late Aero blades but have a multiple lip normal blade underneath - would be nice if someone could get me a close up of the proper ones so i could compare but hey for £28 odd trade i didnt care anyway :p

    ripped the old ones off and fitted em and had about 5/10 mm to spare between the blades so adjusted wiper arm a tad to compensate and looks fine without touching

    only hassle at the moment is on full sweep they just touch the side moulding of the screen at the top on teh drivers side but i have decided to let em settle a bit then readjust rather than cutting but the end caps clip off to cut them anyway so Plan B will suffice if needs be


    to evaluate

    easy to fit - once you get your head round how they go on :p (pics help)
    fits to std loop end arms so saves a ££££ on parts
    not quite the full monty as thought but 90% and looks the dogs
    work a HELL OF A LOT better than the original ones
    marked up Bosch ;) so proper quality
    £28 for the pair but then that was std trade price + should be no more than £32 retail

    see the Pics and see what you think ?

    I have a wiper blade application book, so if anyone wants to know what size blades they have without cracking out the tape measure, give me a shout.

    mine were 540/460 originally

    new ones are 600/400 so look a bit strange at first being shorter but means drivers side gets a full clean area

    should be just the job - just note as above may need a tweak to keep em seperate or a slice off the ends but nowt too hard just do it OFF the car ;)

    no pic they just seemed to have a 2-3 mm hole through the centre, not sure if it opened out like the pics you had up.

    only ones they seemed to have that were "innovative aero blades" were for skoda and vw.
    usual bosch stuff for the rest.
