S2 Wiper blade refills? - Interior/Exterior/Lights/Glass/Alarms/ICE/HVAC - The Lotus Forums #ForTheOwners Jump to content

Does anyone have a source for the wiper blade rubber? Below is a pic of the one i removed from my original (I think) blade. I have a new SJ wiper fitted but its not very attractive versus the original so would like to get that refitted. I'm struggling to find the correct profile. the rubber is 1/4 inch wide and 1/2 inch top to bottom. 24 inches long.

Happy ending. I have found a refill that fits and works without needing any modification other than trimming to length. I've stocked up with a couple for the future. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/11

On my S1, I bought a Trico refill blade (in the US). If memory serves, it was 26” long. I might have the package in the garage if you want details.    JTM

Don't know if this helps Pete but I picked this up from eBay a few years ago.

Thanks Andy. Hard to tell from the pics but I don't think that has the right profile. The important bit is the little triangular piece which needs to fit through a similar shaped metal section on the wiper.

Pete,

I did not find the package, but I found the receipt.  It says Trico 45-240.  This is the rubber refill.  I bought it at Advance Auto Parts in the US.  Their website says it is 8 mm wide.

A Google search showed it appearing several places (including Amazon).  Sometimes they say "Narrow" but they all seem to be the same 8 mm wide.

It has been about 3 years since I did it, but it took a little bit of effort to install it.  But I made it work.

On my car, the wiper blade holder (the metal part that holds the rubber blade) actually has a small "Trico - patented" on the side.

I hope this helps.

Jim

PS - I actually bought both 45-240 and 45-260, but I measured the length of the blade on the car and it is 24"

None of the Trico one's I could source fitted.
