    Hi all,
    Does anyone know if you can fit a slightly longer wiper blade on the rear window of my FR-V
    At present it only clears half (from top to bottom) of the window. The bottom edge of the "sweep" is right in my line of view.
    I have only recently got the car and it is the only thing i could fault it on.
    I will get used to it I suppose, if nothing else is available to cure this little problem.
    Thanks.

    it will be a case of trial and error to find out which will suit your needs, However finding one with the same blade with the same fitment is another thing you may have to change the arm too.

    I would think you should be able to get a "generic" replacement type blade.

    It is a different fitting to most and comes with most of the body of the wiper blade, plus what you have to take in to consideration is if you put a longer blade on it most likely won't curve around the bend of the rear screen and stick out off the window. probably why it's so short in the first place :-/
    But if you do find an alternative that works, I'd be interested in seeing it and knowing what is was you used.

    Good luck :Niceone:

    In that case, get some RainX or similar on rear windscreen and have less reason to call upon the wiper.
