As for the Scenics, I had found this picture somewhere (maybe in the forum), when I was looking to buy a present for my brother's Scenic (November 2004, pre-face lift model) last year, which was supposed to be fitted with the Valeo VM400, while the wiper arm was for the VM419 (typically, January 2005 and on) !! He finally bought them from a Renault dealer, for 50 euros (I had bought VM400 and he exchanged them, with 5 extra euros ) !! Quite cheap for OEM ...

Valeo VM400

I can recommend the VM400 Valeo blades, use them on my 2004 Scenic, good quality and rain clearance.
