    Default From where to get Original/Best Honda Civic 7th Gen Windshield Vipers

    I am fed up of these stupid low quality windshield vipers. In the past 6 months, two times, the rubber on the viper has worn off and I have bought vipers 2 times. I want to know if there is any good shop in Lahore or Honda Dealer etc which can provide me windshield vipers that can last longer than that. Or is there any smooth way to get those rubber back on the viper?


    I occasionally clean off my windshield in the morning using vipers so you can say that I do use vipers apart from rain etc.

    the replacement bosch wipers are not the same as the OE supplied Bosch wipers, e.g. the Bosch wiper blades for any mercedes are not available as "Bosch branded" replacement part - they are only sold as "genuine Mercedes Benz" part - and their quality difference is like 5 and 500.

    same with japanese wipers, The factory wipers have separate refills that can be installed in under a minute and are pretty cheap too, e.g. the genuine mitsuba made Nissan branded wiper refills for my 2013 altima are about USD 9/- from the dealer for both wipers, while genuine wiper blade assemblies are about USD 60/pair.

    Point is.

    Genuine blades sweep the best and are made to be quiet too.

    replacement wipers are a generic variety and usually are pretty flimsy too. They are good for old model cars which had pretty simple windscreens - nowadays cars have crazy shaped glass and the wipers also have eccentrics that cause more stress on the rubber.
