Ok ... total noob here..

First time buying wiper blades, few questions.
I have a 52 plate 206.

1) What are aero blades? Are they much better?
2) Are aero blades easy to fit?
3) Prices? Recommendations?
4) Will these fit:
cgi.ebay.co.uk/PEUGUOT...497wt_1026
5) What size am I looking at for my 206, front and rear?

Sorry for so many questions - this is my first time buying Embarassed ... it was the 'tesco' thread that made me aware of aero wipers...

Aero are nice! Dont buy them cheap ones, Buy cheap buy twice.

Bosch do really good ones example here

They are the same to fit as normal wipers. Not sure what your sizes are, but my car is 02 and the wipers are 22/22 on the front. The rear wiper is the same on every car.

Check out www.wiperblades.co.uk and go through the car checks and it will present you with what you need at the end.

Cheers 206 - they're a bit more than I thought they'd be when I saw all the cheap prices on ebay haha Razz

I'll wait until my car's back from the body shop and have a look then.

Cheers again Very Happy

Them ones on wiperblades.co.uk are only 6.20 each... that sounds a good price? They're also recommended by Auto Express which I read regularly so I might get them Surprised ...

Aeroblades don't wipe any better than normal window wipers, they just look better.

Also with aeroblades you need a inch shorter, so its 21/21

Dam. Wiperblades.co.uk told me I need two 22" so that's what I bought.

I'll see what happens and return them if they don't fit, thanks for the heads up Lee Embarassed

Ordered a set of 22" aero wipers.
Ad even stated "peugeot 206".

Wiper on o/s hits the window trim on the side nearly bending the wiper?

Is it the wiper being too big? The seller being a retard and not giving right size (states 22" on the box), or aero wipers need to come in smaller size to fit?

Thanks

I have the same problem with the o/s hitting the window trim

What I did to cure it was slightly file down the end of the wiper blade.

Although 22" is correct for OEM, it has been found that the 21" aero fits perfectly. Some compatibility lists will state that 22" is needed which makes it really confusing.

Thanks guys. May contact the seller to see if he will swap.

Is it suggested 21 for both sides? Or just o/s
