SIZE OF REAR WIPER BLADE?

Post by Justin » 13 Jun 2012 02:42 pm

What is the official size of the rear wiper blade on a 1988 volvo340DL?
1988 340 1.4 DL

(I suffer with O.C.D. which makes me obsessed with fine detail)

(Diagrams or photos are far more helpful to me when it comes to cars)

Well catalogues can be wrong and I don't have car with a bidet on here to confirm 100%

Bob Bosch cat:
340 08.79-10.91 and 360 01.86-07.90 AR18U, AR18U, HBG, SP18S, SP18, SP18, SP18/18S, SP18


1st number is the driver's side retrofit flat Aero type
2nd number is the passenger side retrofit flat Aero type
3rd code is HBG = hook type fastening (which excludes the very early 1st generation cars with pin fittings)
4th number is driver's side standard type with spoiler
5th number is driver's side standard type
6th number is passenger side standard type
7th number is driver's std with spoiler & std passenger twin pack
8th and last is the rear one.

From memory I'm fairly certain that they are conveniently the same all the way round.
