    Guys

    I need to replace the wipers, do I just get one from Supercheap or should I get one from Holden spares...?
    Please advice

    Thanks

    Do you mean wiper refills? If so:

    Just goto KMart or any auto store? For a few extra dollars they should also have Teflon coated windscreen wipers which usually last around double the life of others.

    If you mean the whole wiper blade (refill and holder) assembly, then yea, Holden don't charge much. But you can still get them anywhere too for roughly the same amount.

    Put some Bosch Aerotwins on it,after using them you'll never use anything else.
    They are the one piece wiper similar to what VE commy's use,and can be found at Supercheap.
    You'll need a BBA500 and a BBA550 for the VY.

    Alright you can either just buy standard refills or go with the "flex blade" made by triton i believe (find them at supercheap, even have a book to show your size)....the flex blades are sweet as and simple to install (Highly recommend and about $60 for the both), although a little pricey...otherwise just go with some silicon refills

    Bosch Aerotwins for sure. And get some 303 wiper blade treatment to keep them in tip top shape.

    Lift the arm away from the windscreen,push the small clip on the plastic U-shape fitting and slide it out of the arm (back towards the windscreen).
