Replaced the wiper blades in my 451.

Bought a Valeo 10D for the rear, and a Valeo ONE21 and ONE22 for the front.



Cost was $25 with shipping....

Ha, ha, got you beat. The OEM wipers I got from the dealer only lasted a season. The passenger side got a rip so it was leaving streaks. ($30 is a pretty good price, but not if they only last a year) Checked out Rock Auto for some OEM blades (no luck) and got a pair of close out NAPA blades for $2/ea!

The bad news? They're taller than the OEM blades and after 1/2 hour of adjusting the washer jets, they either hit the wiper blades or shoot over the top of the car. I'll deal with it until they wear out.

I'm STILL looking for a set of blades with replaceable inserts. Getting really tired of buying $35 wipers instead of $8 blade inserts.
