    Default Rear wiper blade ripped off

    Rear flat blade ripped off by build up of snow. Can't find any on LMF or any on ebay that look like they fit onto the proper flat blade arm. Is it a trip to the stealers or anyone know where to buy online?

    Thanks.

    All the ones on ebay are for hook fitting onto standard arms. Pain in the @rse.

    Need to remember the rear wiper swipes when reversing when the fronts are on.

    Not strong enough to cope with frozen snow at -14 up here anyway.
