Mercy: just paid $50 for new wipers. I hadn’t realized they’d climbed that high.

What kind of vehicle?

I notice Bosch wipers are crazy expensive if bought at a retail store.

Yes, I bought for my ex MBZ online for 30%, whatever they were selling it locally on NAPA or dealer.

I hit the local job lots store. They usually have wipers at good prices. Under 5$. Lasted just as long as Anco or Trico. Both cars came with good wipers.

Yea this is about right for the aero wiper style on the newer european cars, or the ones that have special connectors to the wiper arm. The J hook is long gone on most models now.

I've bought top quality Denso and AC Delco blades from Rock Auto for less than $5 each, and shipping was cheap for 8 blades (3 cars).

even Trico Ultra from Walmart is only $17 each, or $35 for the pair. Made in USA smile

If even that is too much, there's the Trico Flex for about $25 for the pair, but they are made in Mexico.

My car has a odd size passenger wiper, there is literally NO aftermarket replacement. Thankfully Nissan offers refills... and if you DO use a aftermarket wiper on the drivers side, it blocks the sprayer.


This is crazy stupid.
