So I went to Autozone to pick up new wiper blades Monday. I went with Rain X because the manager said any of the 22" will work and they were in the median price range, I got home to put them on and they never snapped. I read the instructions on the packaging and it said it will either snap or fit "snuggly." While I was driving this evening (2 days after) my wipers basically fell off in a down pour. Did I do something wrong? I searched the archives and somebody else had the exact same problem as I did with these blades, so I don't believe so. I'm going to go back to the store tomorrow and have them either help me, or let me return them and get ones that actually fit, it's a bit.

Has anyone else had a problem with their wiper blades not fitting properly? If not, what blades are you guys/gals currently using?

Yeah RainX wipers don't fit our cars. I think we're in the 2% of cars that the adapters don't fit ha. At least I've never gotten them to fit. Maybe I'm an idiot ha. But I use Bosch Icons anyways. Always awesome.

Haha yea I saw the "fits 98% of vehicles," naturally not Saab.

I think I'm going to go with the Bosch, I'm assuming they're simple to fit on? They just slide in and snap in place?

Yeah just like you I didn't notice the 98% until I was trying to fit them ha. Yeah the Bosch are well worth the money and simply slide on and the cover snaps closed. I like them because it really is a cover that goes over the connection. Makes the wiper look sleeker. Also stays in place and is easy to see if it's lose.

Strange, I have the Rain X Latitudes on my Arc, no fitment issues (and they've been used for many months now, including rainy summer months).

Sorry to revive a dead thread, but I figured I'd update it. The rainx wipers do fit, I was just an idiot and didn't think to take out the extra clip they supply in the package. The clip that comes on the blade originally doesn't fit our J Hooks, but the extra clip that comes along fits perfectly.
The Rainx blades work excellent, very happy with them.

Weird. Maybe it was just the ones I bought. I tried every clip in the package and none fit the hooks. Tried for awhile until I felt like an idiot.

I never got the rain-x wipers to fit right. I have been using them without a snug fit, but they never came off.
I did pick up some Bosch Icons. Looking forward to putting those on.

Boschs have been perfect for me, had mine for 2.5 years (1 year on my audi, 1.5 on my saab), i definately recomend them :)
