Hi all,

Hope you can help. I needed to replace my C5 Aircross rear wiper blade and found a 210mm blade that seemed to fit. Only problem is that I broke the plastic lugs that the bar click into on the blade so now I need to replace the whole arm as well as the blade.

Does anyone know of a compatible arm assembly that I can purchase, other than going to the main dealer? Preferably online as I live in the Outer Hebrides and options are slim here.

Plus, I cannot believe how difficult it is to find this online, its not like the model is that new any more, but even finding a blade seems to be more challenging than other vehicles.

Thanks in advance.

Craig

Hi Craig. The arm is not one of those parts that you will find made by an aftermarket manufacturer.

This is the part you need:

These are about £18 from Citroen also.

Their shipping is still £5.99 so with ours is only £1 more, plus we still work out cheaper, maybe not to highlands.

Thanks for the option but just got to checkout and the parts (wiper arm and blade) came to £24 and the carriage (to the Isle of Lewis) came to £31. These are small, light parts, they would go in the post easy, that carriage is too much, sorry.

Autofixa are out of stock by the look of it so I guess I will have to try a dealership and get them to post out.

Thanks anyway,

Craig, don't forget you should also be able to order these in from a Peugeot dealer too as they all have access to the same parts data and it's the same company.

Good point, I had forgotten that. I have to fly to Inverness for work in a couple of weeks, they will have both dealerships so will order and collect from them.

Thanks again its much appreciated!
