Wiper Blade Size issue 1972 GTV
The wiper blades on my Euro 1972 GTV 10501 measure 14" on the driver side and 14.25" on the passenger side. The refills which came on the car are slightly different.
Looking online, where information is always correct?, the recommended size is 16". So, finding no other option, I bought a Trice Correct Fit. They look like they fit when installed, however they interfere as the open and close - especially upon closing when the bind and won't park.
What gives? Should I try 15" or go back to the 14"? On web site lists 13" through 1970, then 16" for the GTV beginning in 1971.
My wiper arms are the ones found on the later 115 US cars with offsets. The operate in the clapping mode.
The 16" wipers appear to cover more windshield than the 14". And the 15" wipers would as well, if they don't bind. Anyone have experience with this problem? Solution?
