OT, can any one tell me how to remove/adjust the wiper arms of an M800? I tried removing the bolt at the base of the wiper arm, but the thing does not come out. Is there any clip/hook I need to remove? My issue is that when I switch on the wipers, the left side one sweeps too much and goes out of the windshield to touch the body.

- Thanks, Jose.

NO these are not the one I have, they are similar to Syndicate, but I feel better then syndicate but 26" will too big. Right now its 22and there is very little gap between small and large.

In india, bosch (aerotwins) are something similar! Are these the ones you got or you got the frame type ones?

I got Santro Xing's front wipers for Rs.260 (20" and 16") and the rear one (13") for Rs.100.

Joseph, very sorry but can't help you in this regard, why don't you check it with Maruti guys?

tsk13, will try it next time I take it to service.

Quite surprising that no one has tried this before.

Any idea about availability at Palika bhavan, New Delhi??

I've read quite a few positive reviews here and would sure like to get mine changed to Bosch.

Just got a pair of 17"/17" Bosch for my Maruti800

and 20"/18" for my dad's Accent!! Both from Batra Auto Spares(though I would recommend Delhi guys to go to Ganpati Automotive @ lodhi road directly! (Those living around Moti-Bagh and Sarojini Nagar area)


Pics!

Hi Guys, need help. Wednesday night when it was pouring cats and dogs, the car's wipers just died on me. Need to change them now before I have to drive again in blinding rain without wipers. Where can I get them for my Ikon in and around the Indiranagar area ? Also, is any particular model i should be looking at? Thanks in Advance.
Cheers !!

Yesterday I bought 18"/20" wipers for Baleno, from Bosch distributor on JC road (Bangalore). Since they exclusively deal with Mico/Bosch products, I believe it must be original (though it is marked made in PRC!). Later I realized that it was packed one and a half year ago, not a recent piece. Is it a issue worth demanding replacement? (Especially because rubber parts actually deteriorate not only based on usage but merely on age as well!)

Bosch Wipers : Marathalli Bangalore

While coming from the Airport road to Marthalli, take the left from the marthalli bridge (the free left). On the left side, where the where the road joins the ring road there is a Federal Bank ATM. Just next to the ATM (before it) there is a narrow road. Take a left and go into the road and you will see that shop. I got my 19/19 (Ford Ikon)Bosch blades from him for Rs 320.

Okay, solved the mystery on how to remove wiper arms of M800. It's just to unscrew the bolt at the base. Earlier when I tried, it did not come off because it was all rusted at the base . Today morning when I exerted some force the arms came off.
