    Default Flatblade wipers

    Am i right in thinking a few of you have fitted the flatblade wipers to your cars?

    I'm needing to replace my blades, but what is involved in changing to these new ones, if it's possible?

    Straight swap m8 - piece of cake. They simply go on in place of the old blades.
