Wiper Blade for 2010

Got a 2010 RAV4, still got the original Wiper Blades on there.
so far i got around 60K on it, yes i drive a lot, most of them long distance.

so i thought it was time to change the blades. the rear was pretty easy, only one of its kind in the store. the passenger side i swapped out for some RainX. for some reason the rainx or any other parts catalog i have found say to put in 24 inch blades. but when i measured my OEM ones they read somewhere between 21 and 22.

so i grabbed a 22 and the top end lifts off the windshield. (on top of the glass where it meets the roof) then i swapped them out for a 21 and they don't go up as high as the other ones and i am left with about 1 - 1/2 inch of snow/slush on top.

this cant be that complicated...

what do you guys use? what brand? size?

i would prefer the one piece blades over the ones with springs. i do live in canada after all and i don't want the ice build up in the springs.

I just replaced all 3 blades the other day. Got them from my Toyota dealer, they work perfectly--total cost with tax--about $16. You can get them even cheaper online:

Driver side 600mm - 85214-YZZD5
Passenger side 425mm - 85214-12301
Rear - 85214-31010

got to love the states, where you can get them for that low. the dealer in ottawa wants to charge me $18 for the rear one alone. crappy tire isn't any better either.

so looks like 24 inch is the proper size. but i would think the top of it would either go pass the glass or hit the passenger side.

maybe i will try it and see

*update since my last post*

i did buy a 24 and a 17, and what do you know, the 24 is too big. even though every single catalog out there refers to it as 24, so i call the dealer and they said that for some reason some Canadian models did come with a 22 as stock, which is off the matrix/camry. AHHHH...

so with this new info, i went down to Canadian tire, and actually got some real helpful service for once. i explained what has happened and the guy recommended the reflex for my 17inch passage side and reflex hybrid for the 22inch driver side.

WHAT DO YOU KNOW, THEY FIT PERFECT...

now if i could get either a 2nd pump or a better pump for the washer fluid we would be good to go.

so for the canadians out there that need something good for winter, (i guess summer also) this is good stuff. so far ive had it on the car for 3 days. with arounx 2000Km on them, yes i did a lot of driving over xmass. and they are great so far.

I buy my blades at Ollie's Bargain Outlet. Full blades not refills are $2 for summer , $3 for winter. Have to buy rear refill at dealer for $3-$4. Call dealer to see if in stock, if not order then pick up in few days.

Just replaced both front wipers on my 2007 with Bosch Evolution 24/17 blades. They fit easily with no problems and wipre smoothly. They were a bit spendy compared to what some are paying (around 30 for both), but I've had really good luck using the newer designed blades that don't have the bulky metal framework. The blades stay flatter against the window and are less effected by wintry conditions.

just recently purchased these from amazon for $20 the pair, that is $10/each

driver:Valeo 900-24-1B All-Season ULTIMATE Wiper Blade - 24"http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CDADO8/ref=oh_o02_s00_i00_details
pass:Valeo 900-17-1B All-Season ULTIMATE Wiper Blade - 17"
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CDCCN8/ref=oh_o02_s01_i00_details
They work great, but of course are brand new (quiet, clean windshield on upstroke, downstroke is just there to move water down from the pass blade).

However, use to have the rain x lat's (Rain-X 5079280 Latitude 8-In-1 Premium Graphite Coated Wiper Blade) and they too also worked great. Had them on since Sep 2010!!!! with only recently bad performance. I live in central PA, there was a lot of snow last year, cold days/nights, but this winter was light.

But within 4-5 months of use, the driver blade experience a streak right in the middle of driver view that would appear/stay only on downstroke. This annoying, but overtime got worse. I've read many state its a design flaw that over time was exposed (too long of a blade with that much of a curve, that eventually would lift,bend,push the blade into the windshield it would deform the blade just in that area).

My point (sorry for taking too much time, there too much caffeine in me system), when i replaced them with the valeo, i noticed just like any other blade system the rubber can easily be removed. Also, the rubber blade was bent in one direction. I decided to remove the blade from the frame, reverse the order, reinsert into the frame, clean the frame with vinegar (soapy water, windshield fluid will do) to remove oxidation/grime/oils... and what do you know, it performs like new again..

POINT CLEAN AND ROTATE THESE BLADES they can last longer..!!!
