What is the best way and place to buy windshield wiper replacements? Most places sell only the complete blade nowadays, but I am told that one can buy rubber inserts only. Is that true and if so where is the best place to get them? Approximate cost? 2006 bmw 750i.

Thanks
Harvey

My dealer had the rubber refills at well under half the cost of all new blades. Still not cheap though, at around $45.00 Canadian. New blades were about $120.00. I installed the refills myself, fairly simple job.

Buy the refill blades from the stealer. $4.00 a piece and easy to install!:thumbup:

I just called the dealer here in philadelphia and they said that BMW no longer sales the refills and that I would have to buy the whole 80.00 blade.. Is this true? :mad:

It's true at that Stealership, you have to just search around for a dealer that does sell just the refills.

Have any of you ever used non oem (bmw) wiper blades (blue mountain in particular) ??... 26in is driver and passenger side right?
