Front wiper blade replacement

Post by Macan forum » Wed Dec 26, 2018 4:46 pm

Hi all
Has anyone had issues tyring to fit Bosch Aerotwin AP24U blades using the adapter no. 4?
This is to my 66 Macan GTS.
They just don’t seem to slide onto the arm and I don’t want to force them.
Thanks

The pair I bought from Amazon already had the correct adaptor fitted so no problem, if a little fiddly.
Fitted another pair to Mrs P’s TTS the other week using one or other of the adaptors and all seems fine.



P.S. A298S was the number of the pair I fitted to the front of my GTS, don’t think AP24U is the correct part number?

This is what I ordered from Eurocarparts in Feb 2018. They fitted really easily. Just a few seconds to fit and are far better than the original wipers.

Thanks all for your replies and suggestions.
It appears I bought the wrong type, although the main Bosch web site gives both as options for the Macan.
Thanks again.
