Wiper Blades
« on: 28 March 2021, 11:12 »
Just posted in an existing thread in the Mk.7 seection but figure I should post here as well, to help others out in future.

Just looking at getting a set of Bosch AeroTwin wipers for my Mk.8 but the Bosch website doesn't list the 8 and when selecting the A864S which go on the Mk.7, Halford's reg-finder says they're not suitable for the 8.

Is anyone able to confirm if the A864S will fit on an 8, please?

Just a heads-up...

The Bosch A864S blades from the Mk.7 fit and work great.  Thanks, Pete!

The rear blade for the Mk.7 - Bosch A282H - doesn't fit.  It's a slightly different fitment and the blade is a little longer than the OEM one. 

The Mk.8 is still not listed on the Bosch website car finder.  Amazon allows me to find the Mk.8 but it will not find any results to compatible parts. 

I looked for a 'Contact Us' page on the Bosch website but there isn't one.  There is a section where one can download .gifs of Llamas, though.  Go figure...

I don't use Twitter but, if anyone does, could you please drop Bosch a tweet and query the situation?  You'd think that there would be a product out by now, considering the length of time that the Mk.8 has been released.
