I wanted to change the wiper blades on my 09' GU and found the old ones are two different lengths! The left side is 18" and right side is 19".

Is this normal? Luckily the shop owner said he'd sell me one of each...but this still seems weird to me! :rolleyes:

supercheap and autobarn only sell them individually, most cars are actually different lengths. Even my commodore has a different length for both sides.

Ahhh....I've been driving Land Rovers for the past 16 years and had no idea about the two different lengths! My Range Rover Sport and Discovery are same left & right...even my Ford F350 has one size.
I bought two packs....now I have a complete set of spares for next time.

Not only are most cars different lengths, a lot are different thickness blades now. Causes no end of confusion for customers. :cool:

Back ones sorted mate...a bought a two pack of 14" at the same time.

They don't wear out here...the harsh sun simply ruins the rubber and they fall apart :-( I'm sure you get something similar in the hot Australian heat too?
