    Default genuine GM flat wipers for older Vectra-C

    I have a 2003 Vec-C GSi with genuine GM flat wipers that fit on the original arms without modification. I bought them several years ago.

    I went into the dealers today to get some more and they have never heard of them. They say either change the arms or put traditional wipers on.

    I find the GM wipers are so much thinner than other branded wipers and work great. Any idea where I can get some more of these GM flat wipers without changing the arms? I guess a part number would be useful?

    Cheers, Andy

    Deary me, no wonder some dealers are going out of business. Twin pack of flat blade wipers to fit Vec C is 91389630. I bought these ones a while back(they are still on) and found they were not that great BTW, they are made by Valeo, most people recommend The Bosch ones, personally the best one I have found are the Tesco ones.

    Bosch aerotwin wipers are the best retro fit. Never heard anyone complain about them. I tried a few and would'nt buy anything other than these.

    As ozyboyross said the asda wipers are an absolute steal at 4 quid each for the flat blades,had mine on now 6 months and there still like new and so quiet,bought some more last week for when the old ones wear out.
