Default Palio Wiper Blade size

Can anyone advise the size of the front wiper blades?

I am in the U.S. right now and would like to pick up a set of premium wiper blades for my 2002 GTX, but want to make sure of the exact size. Would appreciate it if someone could take a measuring tape and post the sizes of the front blades.

There are some really nice blades available here, and I am looking at either the Bosch Excel +, or Rain X Latitude.

There is a post earlier that says 21 inch & 18 inch. Can anyone verify these lengths with an accurate physical measurement?

Thanks,

Rudra & Carfreak,
Thanks for the replies. No rush, so just get me the measurements when you have a chance. But please try to take the measurements yourself with a tape-measure.

Thanks,

Did we manage to figure out the exact size? I wish to pickup the Michelin wiper blades for my Palio - Pylon Manufacturing Corporation.

RedMM540, are you still around the Bay area?

Just adding to this post.

2 days ago, I noticed my Palio Stile 1.6 rear wiper was not working and the rear blade was facing down towards the road. I thought the wiper motor was an issue. So I dismantled the assembly and checked the motor (without the wiper attached), by switching on the rear wiper. The motor seemed to be working fine.
I then realised that someone(kids !!!) had forcefully pushed down the wiper arm and as a result, the motor shaft was turning, but was slipping inside the wiper. The screw hole of the rear wiper blade was clean as a slate and did not have any grooves. The teeth of the motor shaft, seems worn out too (perhaps as a result of the force applied).
I will be going to try a new rear wiper balde to check if that "holds" on to the shaft. If not, I might have to replace the wiper motor.
Can only the shaft be replaced ? Any idea of the cost of the whole assembly? It is Denso.
