    Question rear flat wiper?

    Hi, just ordered some aero flat wipers for the front of my car from e bay, there were loads, but doesn't seem to be any rear ones that will fit a pre facelift.
    I've got a 03 LS hatchback, the rear wiper fits like an axle into a slot rather than the traditional u-hook. (well a lot of you probably know what a veccy rear wiper is like!)
    Anyone got a link to where I can get one from, the one I've got isn't clearing rear window properly, I believe thats an MOT failure?

    Rear wiper is not an MOT failure, a lot dont even have them. Anyhoo to get a flat blade rear wiper you need to change the arm too im afraid. Hand fire and i'll link you up and get you part numbers.

    i thought that might be it...if they are expensive i'll just have to get a normal one, but yes thanks, details would help.
    My stepdads mechanic, who I always suspect of bulltishing, listed wipers on MOT pre check, along with child seat on wrong side?! Step dad swears by him but he doesn't seem to realise you can check part prices on internet. It was when he told me he'd 'cleaned the throttle body out' on my old astra twice in two months that I first thought he was just reeling off a list of stuff he was meant to have done.

    yes mate...i went for a normal one as it was only 3.95. Didn't upgrade to a flat one. My old one was knackered so still a great improvement. Just bumping this thread cos someone is asking for part numbers
