Time has come to to replace the OE wipers of my Ford Classic (Old Fiesta). The sizes are 22" (D) and 16" (P) right? Which one is the VFM option : Hella Dynaedge or Bosch Eco?

Pretty happy with the blades as it is near to OEM wiper blades pricing of Rs 540. Hope they last well.

Go for the Eco one from Bosch.

I have used both the frameless Hella and the conventional one from Bosch and the latter one is any day better and value for money.

In Indian weather conditions none of the wiper rubber last a season cycle. No need to spend a lot on those. Get the cheapest and change every year.

The best option is to get a frameless wiper blade for ~250-350/- and change the rubber every year, hardly costs 60-70/- for the entire wiper set including the rear.

Was driving around in Yelagiri this week during the cyclone and my right wiper (driver side) quit on me. It had been having the shudders for sometime and the blades are maybe 2 years old. I had a hell of a time driving back from Yelagiri to Chennai with one side wiper not working and the heaviest downpour I've ever driven in on the 11th.
I want to understand why one wiper would give up? Is it due to the motor being weak? i checked the wiring under the hood from the wiper motor and it looks intact. The wiper motor was changed about 5 years back. Is there any test that I can do to check if the wiper motor needs replacement? Can it be rewired instead of a replacement?

Hey D4d-maniac,

I am about to buy wiper blades for 2011 - i20 Asta. Have you bought Bosch Clear advantage and used it? Or would you still recommend Bosc Eco wiper blades. Please share your experience.

Hi. I installed Bosch Eco on my i20 last week. Works like a charm. Very silent and gets the job done well. Got it online from Paytm for ₹375 plus 20% Paytm cash back.

My personal suggestion would be to go for the Eco blades and replace them every year, rather than buying the Clear Advantage, which is 3 times the cost of Eco. Not sure of the Clear Advantage will also last 3 times longer.

Default Frameless Wiper Blades - which one?

Hi

Planning to replace the Innova's wiper blades (Duster after this rain!) with the frameless wiper blades. I have fitted one on the rear window of the Innova and it is much better than the stock ones in that it wipes cleanly. In my opinion, this type follows the contours of the screen better & more evenly than the bracketed ones.


I checked out at PowerDrift in HSR and there seem to be 3 brands: Hella, some generic one & Sparco. Like-to-like, Hella is about 900, Generic about 500 & Sparco the most expensive at around 1500. This is for a single blade.

Questions:

- which one is better? Going purely by brand, I would have thought Hella to be the best.

- Actually, what are the parameters for evaluation?

- Long term, are these better than the standard ones?

- Life?

TIA

I buy the cheap generic frameless ones online for about Rs 200 a pair, change then every 4-6 months before the rubber hardens or performance deteriorates. IMHO its better than buying an expensive pair of wipers and then continue to keep on using them despite the rubber hardening because they were so expensive to buy in the first place!

I don't think that only the highly known brand names are good. Other brands seem pretty decent too. I have these Next Gen (Nxt Gen) wipers on my Innova and they work swell, very good quality making, got from local shop at Rs 600/- for all 3 of them.

Thought of getting new Wipers for my Verna and Esteem. Thinking of buying the Bosch Eco as it is highly recommended by many. Can anyone confirm if the below wiper from Flipkart will fit Fluidic Verna without any issues. The blade size is correct but I'm not sure if the locking mechanism or something else is different as my car is not mentioned on the description.
