Hi, very infrequent user here. I should be more active in the forums, so apologies!!

I need help finding the right wiper blade for my '05 A2. Bought one from Euros which turned out to be the flat aero type, which unfortunately doesn't fit. I need a more bulky looking one that has a more old fashioned look and figment. Any advice or links on where to find one will be so appreciated as the one I have is really streaky. I'll add the pics for reference.

TIA

For that style arm you need a Bosch N70 blade, that is assuming the arm is for the A2. Note though your car was manufactured with the later arm for the Aero blade. It must have been replaced with an earlier arm.

Have you tried to really clean the v notches on the rubber, as once they fill with dirt the blade doers not flex properly and makes noise, streaks on the glass or the rubber tears.

I've used some WD40 on a microfibre cloth to clean the blade itself, but I think it's too far gone.
The wiper arm is for the A2, but the end part looks wrong. I might just source a new arm from ebay and take it from there. Might be easier!
