Wipers on the car have never been changed, and in the rain the other day they were making such a horrific noise on the windscreen I almost jumped out and ripped them off.

So it's time for some new ones, had a look on Ebay and was wondering if these would be direct replacements?

Can't answer your question as I don't know.

I will say "you can't go wrong with the original ones from Ford". Mine is still on the original ones & they are still fine so why risk using something else that may or maynot be as good.

Ok cool thanks...the Ford ones are Bosch anyway I think?

Any ideas where would be the best place to get them?

I bought a set of silicon PIAA wipers for my scooby a few years back and they were hands down the best wipers I've ever bought! Or even seen!

Ordered the ones from the above link yesterday should have them tomorrow.

Though think I might need a rear one now too!

I've looked at these PIAA blades at demon tweeks, so they're good are they rob? You'd hope so for twice the price of the Ford ones though,

The OEM ones have guides on them to tell you when to replace... when looking from driver seat and looking at the blades you will see a circle ljke dot in the middle of the blade. If its yellow its time to replace. A mate of mine who has an ST failed its MOT because of it... ha
