    Bought some this week to. Are you having trouble getting them into the "hook" on teh end of the wiper arm? BTW they are ment for left had drive cars, guess thats why they are so cheap, and you need to remove the ends from the blade and turn the areofoil bit around to make the work properly. 5 minute job and for £3 they really do work well.

    STOP RIGHT THERE. No you dont need to take the ends off. if you read the back of the pack it explains how to fit them.
    You unclip the block that the wiper arm fits to and spin it 180 degrees and clip it back on. Simples.
    You should have saved your £3 and put another £6 towards it and got a pair of the wiperblades.co.uk own brand ones. They look the same as valeo's and perform just as well as Bosch aerotwins.
    The tesco ones are pants.

    Spin it through 180 degrees and you should notice that there is not anywhere for the little locking clip to clip into. I did this and thought it would be ok until someone else pointed out that they didn't think it was very secure. I swapped the aerofoils round and reset it back 180 degrees and the difference is huge, much more secure.

    buy cheap, buy twice mark my words. Did it before, they fell apart. Got some aero twins, still going strong. Not on the Vec admittedly.

    As said, they are made in Poland for left hand drive. If you turn the adaptor around the other way to suit right hand drive (with the blade 'lip' facing outward) the blades do not fit as tightly as they should and are prone to coming off when the wipers are on high speed setting. Not funny. This results in the adaptor itself going across the screen and leaving two clearly visible scratches which take hours to remove.

    You have been warned. False economy.
