Replacement Bosch wiper blade not hitting screen

Recommended Posts

My new Bosch wiper blade (proper aero one) has been fitted but it doesn't sweep the whole screen, which is annoying.

It completely misses the screen just below the rear view mirror and again just at the bottom of the screen. Has anyone else encountered this and how did you remedy it? I did a search but couldn't find anything and I've tried bending the wiper arm itself but to no avail.

Do you have the correct one?  I replaced recently with the AM26U and it works fine.

Just checked my order history and it looks like they've erroneously sold me an AP26U, not the AM26U you mention.

I've just ordered the one you've quoted, so many thanks for confirming that I've fitted the wrong one :ph34r:

ETA - the seller, carparts4less list a Bosch AP26U which is what I bought but when I click 'fitment detail' below it gives the short code as AM26U which is seemingly the correct one. Check it out, part no 485777267. Strange, but explains the confusion of me fitting the wrong one. Or maybe even the right one after all.

What's written on the box?

I ordered from wiperblades.co.uk and received the correct one.

Fitted the new wiper and works perfectly. I think I *may* have fitted the old one the wrong way round as when I'd removed it I noticed it had a small arrow. Cringe.
