Following recommendations on other treads I've just bought a set of AR 552S Bosch Aero Twin Wipers for my GT. Sadly despite loads of people using these on GT's I can tell you they don't fit mine!

I have a late 2005 GT (probably MY2006) with 'poles' on the wiper arms instead of 'hooks' (hope this makes sense). If I pretend my car is a 2006 model Wiperblades.co.uk suggests using part code 973S.

BOSCH 973S Aerotwin FLAT Windscreen Wiper Blades 22" (550mm) & 18" (450mm)

These look like they will fit the wiper arms but the passenger side wiper blade is 18" long opposed to 16" long on the AR 552's, so I'm wondering if it's too big on one side!

Has any body fitted Bosch 973S Aero Twin Wipers to a GT? Do they fit properly???

Great link .... It's AR 552's (hook arm fixing) up to MY 07/2005 and A 973's (slide arm fixing) OR A972's for MY 04/2005. The A 972's are on the one's with the 16'' passsenger side wiper. I assume this is the one to go for if you have the rain sensor. If not it's the longer A 973's. Any way that's my theory!

You will find they should fit, I've got larger blades in the pass side, bosch have offset the blade, just go into halfords and measure them. ;)
