Not the exactly the most technical of topic!

I have recently replaced my unbranded rear wiper blade with a Bosch 11" universal blade, however it seems that the blade is too rigid to follow the slight curve of the rear window!! Ive compared it to a Valeo blade, which seems to be the same and obviously don't want to go buying more blades that will be the same......

What brand of rear wiper blade works??

Thanks

I had the same problem. The only wiper I found that would clear the screen properly was a genuine Suzuki one. Not expensive and no frustration.

Having a girlie moment

I never use my rear wipers on any car..
They only scratch the windows as the rear collects too much sand.
I have been thinking about removing it and use the hole for a CB antenna.

Sorry if this i is too off topic :)

I replaced mine with one from Halfords. Can't remember if it was Bosch or Halfords own brand (Velo), but which ever it has no issues following the very slight curve on the rear window. I do recall I had to try a few as the one listed on the computer system did not fit the arm, it was too wide.
Trial and error with the staff found one that fitted.
You can also try it outside the store and if you are not happy with the way it follows the window shape ask for a refund.

The Bosch one and trail fit the Valeo was Halfords, so maybe changed supplier / specs unfortunately.

Did you need to fit a 107 arm Jack? From what I found its a special blade??

Failing that it looks like it will be a trip to Suzuki!

I had the same issue with a Bosch blade. I took a couple of mins and dismantled the old blade, reclaimed the metal strips and swapped them out on the new Bosch blade. Bit of a minor faff but I wanted it sorted. I’ll probably grab a Suzuki one next time to save any hassle.
