Modus Cheap Replacement Rear W/S Wiper
A replacement 10" rear windscreen wiper from Renault is over £12 but an alternative is a 20" Wilco Wiper from Wilkinson Stores at £1.39. Remove rubber from arm, prise out steel support strips and cut rubber in half. Insert steel support strips from original Renault wiper and reinsert in original wiper arm. If you need to detach wiper arm from car it is just a press fit on a single plastic pivot pin so is easy to push off. My original wiper lasted 5 years so keep the other half of the 20" rubber for the next replacement. Saves £11 up front and another £12 in the future. My car is a Modus 1.5dci dated 2004.
