Get The Right Wipers.

Alright guys, thought Id this bit of information for those of you who may not know.

So a couple of months ago my LS Windshield Wiper went out and needed replacing. So thinking the dealer would want a crapload of cash for them, I didnt even think to check. So looking around at Walmart, Oreilly, Napa, Car Quest, Autozone, etc, the 28in blade is what is used. But you cant get just any blade, the Rain-X Latitude, Bosch Icon and a few other like blades. Which run anywhere from $18-30 a piece. I bought a Rain-X Latitude blade and replaced the LS Wiper.

Well now both blades went out and while I was in Coeur d' Alene, ID yesterday I stopped in at Tom Addis Lake City Ford. I walked into the Parts Dept and asked for two 28" blades, i paid $26 for both and I went outside and installed them. Turn them on and to my disappointment both blades would not contact the windshield in the middle of the blade across the entire stroke of the wiper arms.

So i went back inside and had the Service dept do some looking to see if the arms were bent or what. With no luck, I asked... "Is it possible to order the exact wiper blades that were installed at the factory?" The Service Advisor told me he'd go look. after waiting he came back and said " So i have them ordered. after looking there are actually 2 different part numbers for your car, and thats why the normal 28" blades would not work, they will be here this afternoon"

Here are the two part numbers if anyone wants to know.

WW2802 $17.48
WW2803 $17.48

The normal Ford WW PN is WW2801, these wipers do not work with our cars.
