Question Renault Clio rear windscreen wiper?

Hullo again people, quick question.

I have here my trusty 05 Clio, and my rear windscreen wiper has finally reached its lifespan. I have so far bought two; one from eBay and one from a local motoring store, both different manufacturers. My problem is they both don't cover the entire surface of the window unlike my old one. It'll clear the bottom 60% of the window, but only if i do not clip the wiper in properly. (Its sitting ON the clip rather than being clipped in.) Obviously this isn't ideal as it means it can easily fall off, but beyond that it still doesn't actually clear the entire window. Any advice or suggestions?

Thanks!

Re: Renault Clio rear windscreen wiper?

After market ones just don't seem to be flexible enough to follow the curve of the glass I read somewhere that ones bought from Renault do, but are likely a lot more expensive, don't know for certain as I have never tied one.

Only a Renault dealer I would think unless you have the original and can find a makers name on it in which case you may get one by searching for that make.

You could ring these and ask if they are the org fit and see what they say
I just looked at mine and it is the org wiper but fitted with a replacement rubber
blade and that does not sweep the full screen although it did till I had to fit the
new rubber blade so the blade its self must be more flexible.
