Default Which replacement wiper blade refill

Which brands are exact replacement for the original wiper rubber parts for an 03?



One of mine has finally ripped. I had trouble with the 98 car and getting replacements for it. All the companies want to sell whole blades rather than just the $2 part of rubber...

Anco are usually OEM compliant. Autozone carries them, Advance does not.

i hate buying refills, the agravation and time involved in changing them is well worth the extra $5-10 cost

While I answered the original question, Toasted brings up a very good point. Typically it'* 15 minutes and 3 pints of blood quicker to change the whole thing.

I usually get oem replacement elements (rubber inserts) from GMpartsdirect. They work the best IMO. I've tried other brands like Walnmart, they're junk. They sqeal & make a lot of noise.

I have has a lot of success with the new breed of wiper replacement blades, mainly the silicon or Teflon blade edges, they usually last for more than a year with trouble free operation.
