    Default W W blades????

    I'm new to this fourm and to C4s. (1992)
    I need a set of wiper blades. I went to 3 different parts stores and they all gave me a different story and different blades.
    Went to the dealer. He had none in stock and they were $35.00 each, just the blades and were different lengths. What gives with the lack of blades and the dealer price?
    I've been told I need a lower blades, to get hood clearance.
    "Okay, give me two. Sorry, not in stock."
    What are you people running and where to buy?
    Thanks.

    Check out this thread http://www.corvetteactioncenter.com/...d.php?t=105898. TRICO is supposed to have a 'perfect' fit blade.

    I have the ones on there when I bought the car 4 years ago. Only had to use them a few times, and have not replaced them. I have heard of issues with replacement blades....maybe just replace the rubber part by itself, instead of replacing the entire blade?

    Went out on Trico s site and found this:
    http://www.tricoproducts.com/part_lo...out=300#apptop

    The Exact Fit series, says it's identical to OEM.

    You could give Chris May a call at Superior Chevy in Kansas City.

    Mention Greg from Chicago / CAC website and he will give you a discount. You can buy any GM part from Chris. Even with shipping, he usually beats anyone else's price.

    Default Wiper Blades

    I just went to Walmart and got a set for $20. I just had to shave the top center of the driver side blade down so it would clear the hood. I used a knife and a dremel tool to shave the top of the blade.

    I had the same problem with my '93. Went to several places trying the fit of different wiper blades. I found a set that works fine: Trico Innovision
    14-190. I forget which auto supply I did buy them from.

    i had the same problem with replacement blades from WalMart. Had to shave down the top of the snap in plastic piece with the Dremmel to get it to clear.

    Default Wiper blades!

    Thanks, all.
    Got them at AZ. Trico #20-2, Exact fit.
    No adapters needed. Slipped right on.
    Clears the hood, when closed.
    I can see 9in the rain, again.

    Yes.
    GM, says 2 sizes are needed, but the ones on the vette, were the same size and so are these. No interferance and they clear the hood. Full wipe.

    I can confirm BlacksharkL82's feedback about the Trico Exact Fit Wiper Blades #20-2 being a perfect fit. Same blade size for both sides. These blades do not require adapters, preventing any issues in clearing the hood.

    I picked up a set of blades from the dealer a short while back. He ordered them in and had them the next morning. Each the same size, but one was driver side, one was passenger, which is correct. A tiny little P on one and a D on the other.Think they were about $25 for the pair or less.

    Anyway, I am suprised they said none in stock and the price, but especially the dealer saying they were different lengths. Sounds like a bad dealer or a rookie on the parts computer. Anyway, glad you sorted it out and got ones that fit.........lots of people have put on after market blades that don't fit and can cause problems.

    I don't know if the 90 would be diff, but I just go to the local parts store and pick up the right length Anco blades.

    I know it doesn't rain here much in Phoenix but I haven't used my blades when it does, I use Rainx and the water just slides off with no problems, no matter how hard it does rain, did the same thing when I lived in Orlando Fl, where it practically rained daily.
