    the wipers are too short for most autodroid places to carry them....SOR/TPI/MAF/CCOT/others are probably your easiest bet.

    Go to Wal-mart, buy their el-cheapo 12" blade inserts (or whatever their smallest size is), use a pair of sidecutters (wire cutters) to cut em down to size on the non-locking end, pinch the end of the metal sleeve the wiper's in, and voila, you have wipers again, and for only $2 or so!!

    Now was that really that difficult??

    I actually picked up a pair of 13" wipers that are typically used for the back window of a mini-van. With the additional fittings included in the package, it was an easy fix/swap for my ailing wipers.

    yeah,

    the 13" ones are the way to go.

    i actually rarely use my wipers any more, especially because they are right beside the wiper motor in the back of the cruiser. ha ha.

    i got some rain-x and it really works. i have it on all my windows. don't even need wipers anymore.
