    2nd Gen Windshield wipers

    Any recommendations on replacement blades that attach to the factory arms, ideally without the need for adapters?
    I searched here but didn't find any specifics, other than the thread about replacing the arms with ones from a Volvo 240 (those have J hooks and are easier to find replacement blades for). I want to keep the original arms, just looking for blades that will work with them.

    I have looked at the rockauto options, and there's a few of them. But I've had issues with their fitment information in the past not being 100% accurate (understandable), and some of the ones there look like they need adapters.
    I'm hoping for some recommendations from the owners here, what fits and works best, based on real world experiences. Thanks.

    most wipers should fit the pin style wiper blades the trick is finding the little adapter pins. i used to work at an auto parts store and they had a small box full of the little pin adapters. I think i have a pair in my glovebox i can take a picture of for you. i dont know if any of the newer wiper blades come with them still. i used to install wiper blades on lots of cars and the only other vehicle that i remember using that style was older GM trucks but i dont remember if the pins were detachable or not.

    im guessing you still have the stock wiper blades on? you can still get the original trico brand refills at any place that carries trico products like o'reillys if you want. although half the people at the counter don't seem to know what refills are lol

    these are the adapters. you really just need the metal pins.

    I scavenged the ones off my 95 SR and they work. I will admit that I have to use slightly shorter wipers as my windshield isnt as tall.
