Wipers

Post by ford_classic » Fri Nov 13, 2020 10:43 pm

Seen some discussion about wipers on the forum, esp the Bosch Aerotwin. I am unable to locate a supplier for T-cross, it does not appear to exist on sites where you give the car type.
Can anyone point me to a website where I may purchase ?

Thanks in advance,
ford

Hi ford_classic,
I suffered from wiper judder from day 1. Fitted these in August (after 18 months of judder) and not had a problem since. They were from Xtreme auto on Amazon. I used the number 4 fitting and had no difficulty in putting them on.

I got these on amazon. Bosch 3397014318(its a left right set) Not listed for T-Cross as it's too new.

Bought them and they fit fine. They are not multifit as i had tried those but none of the adaptors work. These have the T-Cross correct fitment directly on the blade, except the aero ridge is the wrong side, they're for LHD. It's quite easy to prise off the arm fitment and refit 180 degrees around, like the originals.

T-Cross front wipers are the same as the VW Polo 2018> modal.

Many thanks for your replies.
Re the polo blades, the larger front blade seems to be 26", I measured mine at around 24"

Yes, T-Cross are 625 x 450 you may get away with longer, I've not looked how close to the top of the screen the drivers is.

Hi Ford
https://www.wiperblades.co.uk/aerotwin- ... iper-blade

this link shows how the Bosch wiper blades have multi fit adapters. As I posted earlier, these fit my 2019 R-Line using adaptor 4. The dealer swapped the original VW for another set of VWs but there was no improvement. These cured my problem. They are for RHD so fit straight from box using adaptor. Well worth the money. Toby
