    Default wiper blade problem

    I need to replace the stbd wiper. Apparently they just don't seem to make 700mm wiper blades with the two machine screw fastening onto the pantograph for my jeanneau prestige 32 any more. I can get a 600mm blade from duralite. But would rather have a bigger sweep.

    I was wondering whether anyone had any success just buying the rubber inserts and fitting those rather than buying the whole thing. Is this easy and is it robust enough when the sea is coming over the bow?

    Cheers

    Thank you Martyn. That's not in the Durite catologue but I may have to buy it. I'm still interested in any replies from anyone who has just replaced the rubber part of the blade as that would be a lot cheaper than the £40 odd for the whole lot.

    Yes you can but be aware of the quality as this varies considerably.
    I am old and wise because i was young and stupid.

    I need new wipers too, I think Firefly625 found some that are all plastic, no change of rusty mess. I'll ask him.

    I modified my arms so I could use standard automotive blades https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2p...w?usp=drivesdk https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2p...w?usp=drivesdk

    Martyn, although the picture is of the correct two machine screw fitting, the item code and the write up makes it clear its a 16.5 pin fitting so it will not fit ....... back to the drawing board!

    I guess a refill rubber would at least provide a temporary solution.

    Try motor factors locally to where you live. Especially people who service commercial vehicles.
