    Question vectra c wiper blade mod

    So my wipers are all pretty much at the end of their lives so my plan is to change fronts to flat blades which is a straight fit......I think and the back I want to change to vectra c blade but can someone give me a quick how to? That would be great.

    Oh and if anyone knows the vauxhall part number for the front flat blades (astra mk4) that would be awesome

    The conversion flat blades that Vauxhall sell to fit the Mk4 are only Valeo items with the GM logo printed on them.

    The Veccy C rear arm with flat blade fits. Most people have to cut off the ring around the mounting hole on the back off the part that bolts to the spindle. I didn't have to for some reason. Mine went straight on.

    Yes your right mate just been looking at the price difference and will be going ebay for sure because as you say they'll need changing regularly anyway.

    Is it just me that didn't have to mod the Veccy arm them? It puzzles me why everybody else seems to have to do it.
