Where to find wiper blade refills

I'm not one to waste a perfectly good wiper blade, so I'm looking for just the rubber refills. Problem is, they don't seem to be available anywhere besides the dealership. I tried all the major auto parts stores and managed to find some refills at O'Reilly. Turns out they had the wrong kind of profile. Has anyone had any trouble finding aftermarket wiper blade refills?

get them at the dealer. they are *relatively* cheap. also check the websites of dealers in your area for 'service/part specials'. My dealer often has them for $10/pair. Even at list they are $12.71/pair. Passenger: PN 76632-T5A-J01/J02, list $6.08, Driver: PN 76622-T6A-J01, list $6.63. Double check with dealer as others have indicated Japanese made FITs had different PNs.

There was another thread where I was talking about it. I suggest you search PIAA. There are not rubber but silicone which last, according to some people 10 times longer). According to consumer reports subber wiper blades should be change once a year if not they will lose the capacity to clear the water when needed.

Here is the other threat

You just buy the thing then you can buy the refill which are pretty economical.

Exactly. I paid 10 dollars at the dealer and they put them on. Simple.

Looks great but $70-plus for two wiper blades seems kind of excessive ... but then I blew about $200 for WeatherTech floor mats so what the heck!

Flip the rubber blade once and use another season. Works well for me. I also clean the blade with rubbing alcohol, then lubricate with silicone based spray stuff. Works as new.

Non-oe replacements you can find on amazon for like $2 bucks a 28inch blade shipped. They have the profile that fits the style of wiper with the two metal reinforcements, but I tried fitting them and although they are clearly a very different profile, they work very well. Bummer is that it takes 1 month for delivery. I really don't think the dealer is that expensive; but you have other cheaper alternatives that work just fine.

Dang, I just got back from the Honda dealer and they want $9 for each wiper refill, $27 to re-blade the car. For that price, I'm willing to look for another source.

Come to Florida. My dealer charged 13 dollars and installed them.

I used a rainx replacement, $16 and only takes a couple seconds, much quicker than replacing just the rubber, however i don't think I will use the rainx again, performance has been great but the arm connector is huge.

I may be in the minority, but I like the OEM wiper blades. Unlike aftermarket replacements they're low profile and have no pivot joints to pack with snow and ice and freeze up in the winter.

I like them too.

My dealer will install the refills at a reasonable price, or sometimes free.

I used these inserts in the rain today and they are great They glide over the windshield with no chatter and leave the glass perfectly clear.The front inserts seem to be impregnated with some kind of lubricant, maybe graphite. It transfers to your fingers when installing the blades. The rear insert is just plain black rubber.

Glad it worked for you. Not sure about the graphite, but there was a little something on it. Just figured it was part of the manufacturing process.

I'm curious so, I contacted Keenan Honda, the dealer that sells the blades on eBay. Their parts guy says the blades have an oil / graphite mixture throughout the rubber. Sounds good, I'm looking forward to it.

I just bought wiper refills from the dealership for my 2015 Fit for the first time. When I tried to install them, I got that graphite (or whatever it is) coating all over my hands. I didn't know what it was or if it was just residue from manufacturing, so I wiped most of it off before I put them back on the car. Was that bad? Did I shorten the lifespan or efficiency of them or something? I've never seen a coating like this on wipers and didn't see them on my old ones I removed (though maybe it just wore off), so I was afraid it would leave streaks on the windshield or something.
