At this blog post I described how I swapped the windscreen wipers over so I had an 8" blade on the drivers side and a 7" blade on the passenger side. But it was still not ideal and I really needed a couple of 9" blades. But that size blade with the correct mounting fit (7mm bayonet for those interested) were just not available anywhere. Closest I could get was 10" blades, actually off a Bentley But they were only £6 each so I bought a pair with the intention of chopping of 1/2" from each one.
Fitted the driver side one and had a pleasant surprise, it actually
sweeps beautifully and just misses the top of the windscreen. So no
need to trim it.
But it turned out that I couldn't fit a new blade on the passenger side
as it clashed with the driver one in the park position. So I now have a
10" blade on the drivers side and a 7" blade on the passenger side.
Which is fine. Perfectly legal and I never carry a passenger in the
And I also have a spare wiper blade now:-)
