Try wiper plenum in Google. They can be bought new but the issue is fitment, they don't always fit without some persuasion. A reasonable SH one can occasionally be found at the wreckers.

Good luck with your search, I have a mate trying to find a decent one, I've repaired his original a couple of times...

Yes they become brittle and crack.
Often around where the wipers come through and end up leaking water into the interior.
The last time I got a couple from the wreckers that had cracks in different spots and overlapped the joins and used sikaflex to join together.
Hope that helps.

Hi Wot,

You beat me to that one here in SA that's been listed for months on Gumtree.

$300 is a tad rich from my point of view.

There's plenty to be had at UPI if you have the patience to take them out carefully and not just yank them like most will do and turn them into recycling plastic.

Fitted aftermarket fibreglass item...look ok,don't recommend them at all for a daily.

Finally found a decent oem plastic one after last 2 disintegrated when taking them off.

Maybe one day Rares or somebody will make them & sell for reasonable price.

Even at a $100 I would still pass unless for a show car.
Have you seen the other items he has listed on dumbtree ?

That's why its called Dumbtree and Scumtree. These clowns wonder why they can't sell anything.
