Yes, I bought wiper blade refills as that is the procedure my Toyota dealership use on my Toyota Auris HSD. When I looked at the Toyota wipers and my Mitsu ditto I realised that they are using the same OEM supplier!

As my Mitsu dealership could not sell wiper blade refills I went to my Toyota dealership and they were happy to support me.
Toyota part numbers as follows:
85214-30400 short
85214-02220 long

Price level is is approx 50% of original wiper blades. As the OEM blades are quite sturdy I think it is a good idea to reuse them with wiper blade refills.

Don't know. The Toyota garage did it for me without extra cost! :D

Replaced mine not long after getting the car as I split one end of a wiper when it froze to the windscreen, had the replacements now for 15-16 months with no problems and are better than the ones that came with the car. They are Bosh flat style/Aero Blade type, Have used then on all my cars very impressed how long they last and at high speed how well they still work.

Bosch AR18U
Bosch AR26U

Got them from Halfords, look good on the car.

Thanks Sharky - were the units easy to change? I've found it impossible to change the rear one

Very easy to change the front ones, never tried the rear one. If anything like the wife's car the rear wiper was not a standard item and had to be brought from the Dealership along with the wiper arm!

I think I must be thick or something.

Had a look at the front wipers today in the hope they were as easy to change as suggested and again, I can't see any way to do it. This car beggars belief at times.

When you lift the arm and try to tilt the blade unit to 90 degrees as you would with any normal car, it only gets to about 20 degrees before jamming against the rubber blade.

Help!!!!!!
