For the aero's (I'm assuming your talking about the subaru aero's on the 09+ fxts) the refill works just fine.For the Aeros, will just a refill work okay or do you need to replace the whole arm? I can't believe I'm still driving with the original blades; I should get an NSF grant for a longitudinal study of inertia.
Indeed, those are they, thank you. I asked because back when I had a mortal vehicle the springthings in the wiper arms would more or less die, and new blades alone didn't give enough wiper-windshield contact.(I'm assuming your talking about the subaru aero's on the 09+ fxts)
For my '04, I got an rear arm from a maybe '98-02 Legacy at a junkyard for maybe $10 that takes standard refills. I run a 17" Rain-X standard jointed blade on there. It doesn't last quite as long as Bosch Excel I use on the front. The key on the rear blade is getting one with an extra "segment" on each side. The Bosch have fewer segments and will not curve enough to wipe the glass fully at the top.I will get that arm too but can i use jointless 17" flatwiper?
I think it fits too, if not i will shorten it...
BS. the aeros do take replacement refills, it's a subaru part.... as I stated before in this thread, i've refilled the aero's on both our wrx and fxt.Okay I need a sanity check.
Asked my dealer to replace front blades, and he yanked the Aeros and replaced with new, regular, arms.
He said the Aeros can't take a refill and that warranty replacement doesn't cover the Aeros.
Is this B.S.?
