    Yep. You have to replace the whole arm and not just the rubbers. A really expensive exercise when you can't be bothered wiping the birdy poo off the windshield and it gets baked on.
    Then you think hey how lazy am I? Just turn the wipers on and pull the washer button.
    That's when you see the dried bird poo tear a hole though the rubber.
    That's when you learn how much they are.
    That's why you never do it again.

    Only the whole blade if you replace with GM.

    The ACDELCO once you buy blade then after that you just replace the rubber.

    The other day I tried the drivers side was very tight then it starting raining so that was that.

    Got the rear refill on today.
    For first time you will need some patience.
    Next time should be better (I hope lol)

    I will get the RRP for the back 89002098 and add it to the other post.

    Nice. Not more than a few drops and a little bit of drizzle for me. :( These don't lock you into a particular brand of blade or anything do they? It'd be really good if I can just drop into my local whatever store and grab some blades. For those times when it does finally rain and I find out I really need new ones asap because I've put it off replacing them too long. As I'm prone to do.

    Thanks again VS_Pete. That's not a deal breaker, especially considering the price difference. I'd just have to not let them get to the unusable stage, thinking I can get them instantly if it rains.

    The WiperTech Wiper Blades look good for the VS Wagon but I have 3 AC Delco refills on the table in front of me cost about $13 RRP for 3.
    I might change them twice a year they are thinner but do the job

    You have the part numbers and RRP keep them handy and make sure they don`t want to charge you more.
