    Wipers

    Today i noticed that my wipers do not work to well anymore. I know i cleaned them a few days ago because i washed the car not to long ago. So i went to Walmart and wanted to try out the Michelin wipers. So i look at the catalog, and it says that the drivers wiper is 20mm and the passenger is 19mm. Then i looked at Anco brand, which seems to be good, and they say that i need both sides 19mm. So i got Anco instead because 20mm seems to long. Has anyone ever ran into this before? Is this a typo or the info is correct?

    18"?? lol...

    anyways i would get the 20mm ones, pays to have the longer ones than shorter ones, plus if you have a short one the wiper might scratch the window (even though i cant see how it will with only 1mm difference) but yeah..... also you get 1mm more of your window wiped :P

    Just pull them off and see if one is longer.

    Of course I'm lazy. If I wanted to work on my car I'd have gotten a DSM

    actually 19" is too small.
    i am running 21" on driver side and 19" on passenger side.
    driver side has a lot more open room to see and passenger side is just right.
    next time i am going with 22 and 19 inches ones.

    PS. Anco wipers suck ass. you will be replacing them in next 2-3 month.

    Thanks for the input. I guess next replacement is Michelin ones.
