Wiper Conversion??

A while ago I found a windscreen wiper conversion that allowed the replacement of blades without buying the whole arm assembly on the net, but now that I want to buy one I can't find the damned thing (Ain't it always the way). I don't suppose anybody has any ideas?

I still dont get this, my wiper blades can be replaced and the dealers do refills! But, I know some here have to have complete assemblies

How about replacing the whole arms, they are about 25 from a dealer...each. This would be a one off as you can replace the blades in future? Or do the usual conversion from the AO.com shop.

A lot of people use the arms of other cars, particularly Volvo 440s or late Mk 3 Cavaliers. Both are a similar shape and fit straight on to the 155. You can then fit replacement wipers not just blades, the blade clips on my Alfa arms eventually wore out. I used the Cavalier bits as they were easier to get hold of.

A secondhand set should cost only 5. A quick rub down and spray with satin black and they are as good as new. Stops the juddering too.

Only thing was; I had to fit one 20" and 18" blade rather than two 19" ones. This is due to the slight difference in arm lengths on a Cavalier.

Wiper Kit from AO is 64.95, will be ordering mine as the weather gets worse in a few months, currently the wipers wipe the very top and very bottom of the windscreen- nothing in the middle where is mostly needed
