Different Wiper Blade Fitments

Just a strange one really, I have the facelift 147 which standard comes with the newer style blade fitments, or it should anyway. Just popped to Halfrauds today to replace them and found I have the old hook style attachments rather then the newer style?

Why would that be?

Also found that the rear blade is not an easy part to get in fact halfrauds couldn't even order it in! Ended up fitting the retrofit blades and they are a treat, just found it strange my car had the wrong fittings.

I too have a 2006 face-lift 147 which has the hook type wiper fitment....
Fortunately I looked at them before buying any blades.

Rear wiper is either a full arm, got mine for about 12 quid, but get the correct one, 147's with a rear spoiler are shorter than those without or it will hit.

Or get one of those refill blades and fit it to existing arm.
