    Daft question time -

    I need to go down to the local Halfords (rather than the remote VW dealer), to get front and rear wiper replacements. Do I need to look for "Transporter 2012" blades for my 2012 California?

    Thanks.

    PG Autos in Matlock Chris. Got mine there a few weeks ago. Cheaper than Halfords and closer. Give them a ring with your reg no and they will tell you if they are in stock. Uusally next day if they aren't

    The set sold by halfords (own brand) are incorrect, the passenger side wiper in the box is too short.

    Thanks for the tip off vmaxkiddy.

    PG Auto's looked up my plate on their system, and it showed up as a Caravelle with the choice of 16 or 18 inch rear blades. Unfortunately, I couldn't check the length of the current blade because it fell off whilst I was cleaning the van, and I hung it on the bike rack making a mental note (bad move!) to fit it later. Of course I didn't and it's now somewhere in the gutter in the greater Bakewell area.

    The website Loz provided looks the business, and it identified my van as a Cali 2009-2017 which is more re-assuring. I do like the look of the Bosch part and will go for them.

    Thanks again.

    I know that, but when I changed it to 2008 on their website it was the wrong connectors, only found out when they got here. My own fault for not walking outside and looking before hitting the buy button really :headbang
