Bob is that trade price?
I`ve got RRP on the front page.
i am not sure, i just rang them with the part numbers and they gave me the price.
i am just a retail customer, i am not in the trade.
amcap in Perth are dodgy as when it comes to prices, seems to be a case of who you get on the phone and if he or she got jam on their toast in the morning.
i did notice the column to the left says list price and thats a bit higher.
Bob are you running Windows 10?
Let me know so I can give you a how to do a screen shot mate.
iam a dinosaur, still running windows 7,
would appreciate those tips for future posts,
thanks in advance
I think you should ask in here. Bit over my head.
Thanks VS_Pete just bought a pair saved me a few bucks
a few bucks indeed.
Let us know how they go.
Thanks for this Pete.
Picked up some this morning from Covs.
$17.50 for driver's side & $14.95 for passenger side.
I tried the local Holden dealer for a quote. They don't stock the arms anymore, only the refills and the genuine arms although, strangely, he did have a price in his system. I told him I would pass on the genuine given the price differential. He indicated he might reconsider stocking the AC Delco ones now lol.
Also interesting was one Covs store quoted me the above prices but didn't have them in store so would have to wait until Monday (so next weekend for me) to order them in. The store I got them from initially quoted $20.61 & $17.52 respectively. When I mentioned the other Covs quote they said no worries, I can do that. Only a few $$ I know but I'll take it. I found it strange that the same company has different pricing at two different metro stores.
Going by my figures they must have given you trade price. Nice.
Just a quick update , it has been raining pretty solid here in Ballarat and these Ac Delco wipers are great, not a squeak nor squark- bliss
Agree, had some rain yesterday. While not heavy, they worked a treat and whisper quiet.
Prices updated on the front page.
Only thing that went up is this.
92232799 REAR BLADE $ 28.82 RRP
super cheap 20 $ for new blade & arm rear window sports wagon ..today
VS_Pete, thanks for alerting us to the AC Delco refillable wiper blades. Your time and effort is very much appreciated.
I asked my local Holden dealer about the AC Delco blades at my car’s first service and the customer care representative wasn’t aware of them. However, they did make some enquires for me. When I collected my car, they said that they didn’t recommend fitting the AC Delco blades due to some sort of bad experiences with them in the past. I thought that they were just being party poopers and trying to sell the OEM blades so I purchased a set of the AC Delco blades myself.
My initial experience of the AC Delco blades has been as reported in this thread - all good. However, a week or so ago I noticed the RH blade skipping a bit on the ‘up wipe’ and also missing a small patch of the windscreen near the RH A-pillar. The blades were about 2 months old. I’m not sure if this is just a one-off bad blade, but I’ve now reverted back to the OEM blades.
I’d be interested to hear if anyone else has had any trouble with the AC Delco refillable blades or if I might have somehow got a ‘Friday special’?
19102809 DRIVERS SIDE BLADE $21.65 RRP
19246591 DRIVERS SIDE REFILL $6.07 RRP
You still got the blades?
Mybe try a refill $6.07 RRP.
Your post caught my attention, as I can not understand how we have to pay premium ($50+) for a pair of wipers.
Last week i purchased some from SCA, the SCA branded ones. Not cheap at $60 a pair. After a few days i had a major issue with the driver side one where for some reason the blade was flipping and making a big screeching noise when i'd turn them on (and scratched the windscreen). It seems like the rubber on the left side of the arm was getting very soft under the sun (on a few 35+ degree days) and sticking to the windscreen. When i turned the wipers on, the sticking section would lag behind the moving wiper arm and than the arm would pull it and flip it. Long story short, I took it back for a refund to SCA (and they were hesitant to provide a refund at first) as its not the first time i've had a bad experience with the SCA branded products not been of acceptable quality.
But anyway another option i found for wipers is also at Costco. They currently have the Michelin brand and I purchased them a few days ago (for $9.99ea) and fitted them last night. They work well and clean very neatly. As for the quality, its the first time i buy them so I can't really vouch for them, but my two brothers have had those Michelins fitted on their cars for nearly a year now (in Canberra, so they've had to deal with a few icy mornings and now the summer). For $10 (compared to the fancy and expensive Tridons @SCA), I thought it was worth a try!
I think (yet to confirm) that these wipers from Michelin have a refill. But for the $10 bucks it costs, probably worth replacing the whole arm.
I've attached a photo of these.
Gabo I too have had problems with the sca wiper blades. I got them when trico ones were not in stock when I needed them for my vx. I now have a badly scratched windscreen to the point where I will need to replace it for rego. My advice would be don't use them on any car.
Costco used to sell Goodyear wipers but they were a bit hard and noisy. I'll look out for those Michellins.
Just looking at your screenshot of the ACDelco parts finder - Rear blade only shows a refill AURT6.
Is that correct that the refill will work on the factory arm?
I have VE Sports wagon and the rubber has actually split on mine and come off... wasn't worried until todays rain on freeway and really noticed it .
I also see some "feedback" from the Alan Mance ebay link that a few of the AC Delco ones have broken during use.. that could really suck, anyone had that happen?
