Stainless Steel SE6A wiper blades

Post by james couper » Mon Apr 30, 2018 11:16 pm

Needing new stainless steels wiper blades, cant seem to find a 13 inch blade at a reasonable price, lots of blades on e-bay, but most just give a car make and not a blade size.
What alternative car used similar 13 inch blades or 14 at a push.

Surely the standard blades on a 6a were 14"? Some people use 15", on the driver's side at least?

The wipers i have are 13 inch, looked out the original wipers that came with the car around 30 odd years ago, they measure 13 inch, only found one set of stainless wipers for Reliant SE5A at £35.00 odd pounds, but no wiper size given. Other car makes, even Jaguar wipers were cheaper. Most wipers, even classic car come by car make and not size, therefore was hopping someone would know what other makes had stainless steel 13 inch wipers or 14 if that is more common.

Are we talking wiper blades or wiper arms?
My GTC blades (bits with rubber) are 14 inch and the arms are 14.5 from centre of drive spindle (the splined bit ) to the blade pivot point near the other end of the arm. :wink:

My original wiper arms and wipers are over 30 years old they are 14 inch, the wiper blades (the bits with rubber) are 13 inch and are quite curved when off the screen, which is why i was looking to replace these as they hug the screen very well especially at the extreme edges.
