Another multi-poster. And I just wasted my time replying to your identical
message in the other group you posted to. You should have crossposted
I repeat my answer here for the benefit of those who follow this group only
and not the other one:
Wiper refill rubbers are available for about $5 each at your friendly local
Honda dealer. They work better than any aftermarket product.
Your Owner's Manual is here:
The wiper blade info starts on page 231.
Nothing like a civil response to make friends. I am always amazed at how
many people on newsgroups offer snide comments when they have absolutely
nothing of value to offer to the person asking a question. Just like some
will perceive this post.

Really? My clutch is pretty smooth, and I have found that summer
driving with socks is way better than with shoes. In the Winter, I'm
stuck with boots, and they can make for some occasional rough shifts,
as I just can't get the damned feel of the clutch sometimes...

That's usenet, I'm afraid. You may eventually get the answer you

expert in obscure Nettiquette! ;-)
On the subject of wiper blades, I got a new set of refills from a
NAPA store for my Civic EX. NAPA is generally good, but these refills
weren't even close. When I returned them, the older guy at the counter
explained that the refills were for their aftermarket blades, and the
younger clerk hadn't made the connection when I told him the year and
Recommend OEM at your dealer;they will know what you need. You can replace
the inserts with little effort and I am sure the parts dept will help.
Otherwise, your dealer will be pleased to change them for you at a nominal
I just got replacements from the Pep Boys yesterday. They have many
choices & there are guides to look up your make & model. The 2005
Honda Accords have different sizes for DS - Driver Side or PS -
Passenger Side. Evidently coupes & sedans of the same years have
different sizes too. Anyway when i asked to confirm, the assistant
manager brought them out to the car to make sure they would fit. They
have a big sign that they will install free & you get a free blade
when you send in the rebate for the Rain-X blades.
But after reading about the Honda dealer replacing the rubber only for
$5, I had to check w/my dealer. Turns out they do it as long as the
original blade assembly is OEM. Should have done it when the
maintenance was being done. Labor is free.
Nettiqette...sometimes the group has a lot of static & bs but there
are moments when nuggets of knowledge peeks through. Don't get your
hackles up, move on to the next message or hit delete.
