    We have a 2015 Carthago Tourer. Does anyone know if we can change the n/s wiper blade. The MH is right hand drive and the passenger side wiper does not clear a large part of the lower windscreen. I am only 5ft tall, and as I do all the driving it causes a large blind spot in my field of vision. It looks as if the blade should be longer at the bottom. Are such things available?

    Try Euro Parts
    They have a depot in York ,measure the length of the blades and tell them the make of the base vehicle

    If you think the blade needs to be longer then it may of had a shorter one fitted by mistake in the past .....
    It's no good telling them the base vehicle as I suspect the screen will be different in an Aclass..
    Best thing to do is go to halfords and they have a blade fitting service they will try various blades till you are happy and you pay for the blade fitted....

    Wiper blades always have the pivot point (connector) in the centre as Carthago use Aeroblades you should be able to buy a longer blade remove the end cap cut the blade down and replace the cap giving you a blade with a longer lower section.

    OR
    Swap the van for a LHD - go on you know it makes sense.:LOL::LOL::LOL:
