why is it so hard to buy replacement windshield wipers for our cars??

so the driver's side is 26" and the passenger's side is 18". apparently the 18" is pretty common but 26 is very rare and most stores dont carry them. they all tell me that only the newer cars have this 26" wiper blade and not all companies are making them yet. who woulda guessed its this hard to change wipers?

Try the dealership; they shouldn't overcharge you too much.

i tried michelins tday. the passenger side is fine but the 26" driver side one is too wide. tere is this plastic tings that wraps around the blade and the oem blade is very narrow.
