Front Wiper Blade Clip

Post by Tom 2000 » Wed Apr 18, 2018 10:58 am

Having tolerated a smearing blade for a few months I had a closer look at the problem. I am missing a little T clip from one of the blades. There are two on each blade to stabilise the rubber.
I would prefer not to travel to OPC. Is this blade a Porsche part? Is it sourcable generically? Do I need to replace the entire blade assembly and if so what are the recommended alternatives? Thanks.

Bosch are the only replacements that I will buy although haven't yet had to replace on the Macan. Use somewhere like Wipers Online for a cheap and quick service.

There are other posts on here about wipers including part No. etc.

I bought some from Amazon recently - Bosch A298S Aerotwin Wiper Blade I think about £20.

Forgive my ignorance but do replacements include the entire mount which clips onto the arm or does the rubber blade slide out?

Replacements give you the whole lot and then it just clips on to the arm.

Very helpful. Just what I wanted to know. I will probably source them online or my local Eurocarparts.
