I forget the size...at walmart they have a machine that tells you what size you need. I bought the blade replacement because I like the little spoiler on my driver wiper.

You need to buy a whole blade assembly (including the metal bracket holing the blade) as the factory blades can't be refilled.

I hate buying the chinsey plastic replacement assemblies... they just look like such crap..... I just get the parts at the dealer... costs like $20 to replace all of em but looks best!

Wierd. Well on mine, the whole metal thing the blade sits in was crimped together with the rubber part. I pried it apart and replaced just the rubber blade once, but it didn't work too well. Next time around I just replaced the whole blade assembly including the metal part.

I didn't replace the actual arm that joins up under the hood, but I had to replace everything else. Might be one of those stupid early 2000 model year things.

I just replaced the whole assembly. The only problem is is that they don't come with the wind deflector. There's a reason they put that on there I'm sure.

BUY new wipers from the dealer trust me, none of the aftermarket ones work as well, and at highway speed's they wistle(b/c they lack the wind deflector), I got like 3 different brand's from auto stores and they were all crap compaired to the stockers, so my advice, stick with OEM wipers

Mine was built in April or May of 2000... No problems with it. I'm pretty sure I replaced the rubber blade plus the two metal pieces that fit into it. One thing to note is that there are a couple of different shapes to the "root" of the rubber blade. While you can make either fit, if you get the right one it's MUCH easier.

I always use the Bosch wipers. They ass rape you on the prics but damm they work so good! They did make refills, not anymore
Have to buy the whole thing over and over again.
