I've got the 09 Forester aero wipers too and they are AMAZING!! Can't say enough good things about them... no more chattering and clacking.

I've experimented with blades also.

I've since gone back to a cheap set from Autobarn, I'd say not to dissimilar to what Eden may be using. They cost me $12.

I was using a twin blade setup but found that I was cleaning double the amount of blades for the same result

Yeah, the time between changes is a little closer, but at least my glass wipes clean time after time

These may be worth a try the next time. They look flashy, like the ones on the big expensive European cars

Just had a look at the new foz and the wipers are the same style as the aerotwins. Volvo and vw are also using them.

Ah, that makes sense now... my husband works at a Subaru/VW dealership, and he said about the 09 Forester wipers that VW has been using them for years!

Thumbs up

I've tried quite a few different types on my Forester:

So far I'm liking the 09 Forester ones the best.

That's them - obviously been around a bit longer in the states.
I'm not surprised that there's so many good reports about them.

Hi Peaty,

Hope you enjoyed your trip to the Blue Mounatins we did a few months back as much as I did.

'09 Forester wiper blades ROCK!!!.....

Even on a Toyota.....


Go ahead and totally screw up Ben @ Hodge's Subarus carefully planned inventory and order two passenger side (17") for your Yota. You will not regret it.

I recently replaced the wipers (blades+arms) on both my 03 Forester and 89 Pulsar with Bosch single blades. No chatter, and not $$. Now to see how long they last.
