    Wiper Blade Replacement

    Has anyone replaced the wiper blades on their car with aftermarket ones? I went to replace my wiper blades on the "v" but the odd looking clip set up didn't match any of the ones that I looked at.
    Thanks, SS

    I've been wondering about that myself. Does the following link contain a pic of what your oem's look like?

    Re: Wiper Blade Replacement

    Yup, despite the fact it is a poor picture, they sure look the same as the oem's. When I specifically look up 2007 STS it lists the FlexBlade GVM as fitting the 2007 and 2008. Hard to believe there is only one aftermarket blade but if it is a new design it will take a while to catch on.

    Re: Wiper Blade Replacement

    IMPORTANT - See TSB 886153 - Wiper blade must be in mid travel position before changing. Otherwise, the passenger side arm will scrape the hood.
    Part Numbers for the blades are:

    88958361
    88958359

    List is $29 each, $15 from http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/

    The true irony about the GMPD shipping is that the processing center is less than 5 miles from my house. And of course, pickup is not allowed!

    Re: Wiper Blade Replacement

    Someone want to type up a quick .doc on wiper blade part numbers that work for the car and send it over to Reed at the CadillacFAQ for inclusion on the STS-V info ?

    Re: Wiper Blade Replacement

    You can replace these blades with:
    -OE from GM
    -Bosch Icon
    -Rain-X Latitude
    -Trico Neoform

    The last 3 of which can be found in stores, and are the same new structureless design with compatible mounts for the new vehicles that come with them standard.

    $1605.00 s/h for each wiper blade???
    I would definitely say that's some crazy s/h

    Re: Wiper Blade Replacement

    Hello,

    I'm from Germany and I have a similar problem:
    I can't find replacement wiper blades for my 2005 STS...
    BOSCH Icon and Evolution would fit - a German make, but not sold in Germany

    Does anyone know where I can order them?

    Greetings,
    Sammy

    Re: Wiper Blade Replacement

    Ahhhh... lol how do you change the wiper blades? I got them but cant figure out how to put em on lol. It looks like there is a little mount with a metal bar going through the old ones but cant figure out how to take it off to put it on the new ones.


    nvm didnt see the adaptives at the bottom of the box.
