Default Windshield wipers

Can anyone tell me where is a good place to order windshield wipers for my 2009 Jetta Diesel Sportswagen? I went to o'Reillys and they want $30.00 for one. Any suggestions? Thanks Liz

There are lots of places that sell wipers. Do some shopping. Consider what blade you want, then do some shopping.

See what your dealer parts guy will do for you. You'd be surprised sometimes - they will deal.

Dealer can sometimes be a good deal.

OEM pieces. Factory fit. No confusing clips to hassle with, and sometimes cheaper than aftermarket.

My dealership sells all front wiper blades for $16 each and rear wiper blades for $11 each.

So , we don't need any special type of wiper for our vehicles? Anco, rain-X, etc. make wipers that fit?

the sytle of mounting rain x calls PBT, and where ever you go just make sure you snag one thats compatible with that. Next time, I won't get the rain x as the clunky adapter takes away from the wiper.

I just placed an order with Autohaus for OEM wipers. For the pair it was $24.35 and to get free shipping I needed to spend $50.00, so I just added a couple of things I needed to the order.

Amazon has the Bosch Icons which I believe are the same as the OEM blades in stock.
Bosch ICON 464 (Driver): http://amzn.com/B002ZLCCG2
Bosch ICON 460 (Passenger): http://amzn.com/B002ZLCB7M
Should fit the 2009s and 2010s, YMMV on other years.

As long as they come with the right adapter. MICHELIN has a line that are identical to OEM

Delco also has blades that fit and don't need adapters.

Right on. Paid $42 from the dealer for a pair of OEM euro blades -- AND they come with a 12 warranty. Actually took one back after ~10 months due to a tear, and they replaced without a hassle.
