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?
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
