GT Wiper Blades
I have recently bought a 2005/55 reg Alfa GT JTD. I've had it a few weeks now and am very pleased with it.
The wiper blades were shot so I have been looking around for replacements. This did not prove to be that straight forward - the vast majority of the on-line retailers seem to list the car as having 22" & 16" conventional wipers where as mine is fitted with 22" & 18" flat wipers with a pin type mount. From a trawl of this forum it looks like the wipers/arms were changed in mid 2005.
The up-shot of lots of Googling is that a Mk5 Vauxhall Astra ( 04-09 ) has the same wiper blades ( 22" & 18" with a pin mount ). So anybody struggling to find the correct ones may want to give this a try.
I bought a cheap set off EBay ( £10 ) - I'm sure that this will invoke lots of teeth sucking and tails of horror, but I had a cheap set of retro-fit flat blades on my last car and they were great - much better than the conventional Bosch ones they replaced. I guess only time will tell how long they last.
