    Default Odd Wiper Blades ?

    Front wiper blades
    Should the long wiper blade be on the o/s or n/s on an 06 Vectra?

    Longer blade should be on the passenger side on any RHD car as it has the larger area of glass to cover.

    Have just fitted new Bosch Flat blades, 24" drivers, 19" passenger. At least that's the way they were when I removed them.

    I blame the new blades for knackering my central locking system http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=64102 or my punishment fot having a de-cat and four new tyres - Hope my car freezes to death tonight - payback!

    That was a rant at my motor, sorry to part hijack this thread.

    It would help if when looking at the car from the outside I actually got the descriptions of passenger and driver side correct!! I went back in the house with the LH one in my head being longer, but as I was on the outside the LH one was the driver's side.

    You're all quite right and I'm a numpty - I'll get me coat!

    Physically the 24" one on my motor wouldn't fit the n/s arm - it would hang over the windscreen pillar by about 2".

    The more I read this thread, the more I get confused (easily done at the moment).
