They are different
In saying that, take yours off and see if the arms the same as the pic
Might just be a different connector as not all connectors look the same but still fit the arm if you know what I mean
The blades are ok
Find the passenger side needed some bending in opposite direction cos where the connector area on the rubber blade would only go across the windscreen and pick up the water on one stroke and not both
But manipulating it by opposite bending and such and just time passing and they are pretty good blades
I use Repco windscreen additive also and works great
Also have a once a year water beading windscreen stuff from ALDI actually during their sales which works great also
Confidence very high with the combinations
Try “Wipertech” very,very good.Cheers
Thanks guys for imput
Every one of I have gotten squeek and chatter across the glass. My shop guy put some on and are brilliant, he's keeping them a secret!
Last week when I was in Costco Moorabbin I bought a set of wiper blades for VE for $14.99 per side. $30 seems like a good price to me and they seem pretty decent quality.
slight problem, the AU Michelin website direct to Great Britain site when you click the link for the Hydroedge
so you can't use the online car/make/model search functionality (well not for Holdens) but there was a physical copy in store. It was missing the VE but had HSV VE, VF and Holden VF listed so i made a guess the Holden VE would be the same as the HSV VE. ie 26" driver and 15" passenger, which was correct when i got home.
I've used those Michelin ones from Costco before and they work great. I don't think they lasted as long as the OEM ones, but certainly for the price, were great value.
Same wiper motor and wiper arm assembly VE and VF including Statesman etc
I've been having the issue of the blades not wiping properly in the centre. It did it on my SV6 and it do it on my SS now. Its like there isnt enough pressure on the centre of the blade? Theyre the ACDelco ones.
It cant be a rare issue since its been 3 different brands of wipers and 2 different cars...?
I get this occassionally as well.
Keen to know if there is a solution.
Clay bar your windscreen or use something like Gumption on a wet sponge to scrub your front screen, wash it off well, then install new wiper blades. Half the problem with worn wiper blades is the amount of crap on the glass that cuts them up.
Cleaning the windscreen.
Using the aerospace 303 (which he mentions)
It's way different to silicon based treatments.
303 is fantastic.
Further to some of those, ceramic coating the windscreen takes things further still.
I`ve had the blades fitted for 3yrs. now with refills when needed.
3 months ago (rainy season) the drivers side in my view was doing the same.
I got a GM one replacement at the time.
I think the DRIVERS SIDE BLADE (whole thing) is over the use by date.
I need to get a new AC DRIVERS SIDE BLADE fit and hope it rains to see what happens.
