I couldn't find the correct wiper size in the manual for my '02 WRX. Anybody know the proper sizes?

Can anyone recommend some good wipers? I bought some refills from the store about a month ago and they're already streaking.

I'd like to know this, too. My OEM wipers are the suck. I guess if you wanted to, you could bring in a wiper with you and hold it up to all the other ones.

I want to get a really nice set of Silicon wiper blades, though. I heard they do wonders

driver's side: 22
passenger's side: 17

I just recently bought PIAAs. They fit perfectly and I love them. They are SILENT!

Are you positive about the sizes?

Where did you get the PIAAs from and how much?

those aren't the right sizes.

anco lists online 21 and 18. you can get away w/ a 20 on the drivers side, b/c depending on the brand, the 21s will nick the very top of the windshield.

I'm pretty sure that they're 22" and 17".
After doing a LOT of reading about wipers, I settled on Trico Teflons last year, and I am VERY pleased. They are quiet, and don't streak at all. Much better than stock.
I've heard that the Bosch wipers are bad, but I have no direct experience. People seem to like the PIAA's, but I've never tried them, either.

use a measuring tape to verify the stock size on the car.

PIAA's....they are good for a few months...then they start skipping and streaking.

Right now...I have Trico Teflon

So what's the decision on good wipers? The factory Subaru wipers lasted me over a year without any problems. What's the best replacement?

And do you guys buy refills? Or a the whole wiper?

refills

I recently installed wiper refill blades on my 02 wrx. I noticed the passenger’s side is 17 inches long at 7mm wide and the drivers side is 22 inches long at 8mm wide.

Driver side 550mm (21.65 in)
Passenger side 425mm (19.69 in)

If I were you, I would bring the both blade to the store and watch the same lengh one!!

For my personal opinion, I would buy the cheapest one or only use the refills. Because every year's winter time, the snow definiately mess up my blade. That's mean I must change that once or twice every single year.

I want only the refills. Decent refills are kinda hard to find. Everywhere around here sells the whole assembly.
