    Hi

    We are away for the weekend but I am just waiting for the postman to deliver the wipers I ordered from good old Ebay, details here. The seller 'guarantees' that they will fit, have to wait and see.

    I didn't like the look of the prices for big name wipers, the £9.98 Ebay price is much better.

    I'll let you know if they seem any good.

    Or try www.eurocarparts.com similar to ebay prices.

    Think it's only Halfords / Dealers that charge the silly high prices.

    Thanks Paul & Moho. The 33.22 was priced by the Fiat commercial garage in Leicester.

    Paul, did you manage to speak to them? I am calling the number listed on EBay and not connected.

    Chinese shops here 6€/pair & 24".smaller are cheaper.
    When even Bosch ones are u/s after a month there 's no point paying any more.

    No, I didn't need to talk to them. My wipers have just arrived, look okay but all wipers look the same to me. No instruction in the box but hopefully they will be easy to fit. Quick delivery though, only ordered Tuesday evening.

    I'll let you know if they fit and seem to work okay.

    Just replaced blades on a Fiat Ducato 2010 model, both blades from wiperblades.co.uk, fitting took 2 minutes, seem to work fine, clear the windscreen nicely. Paid about 13.00 delivered so not as cheap as ebay.
