    Need a little help.

    I need to replace the 9 5/8 inch wiper blades and I don’t know where to get them.  They have an IWF stamp in them but I can’t seem to find them online.

    Any suggestions?

    Rocky,  I had the same problem.  O’Reilly auto parts ordered some for me that were the right size but they had the wrong type of mounting system.   I was able to dissect my old blade, bend up two small tabs and remove the old mounts, and put them on the new blades.  Worked good and looked like the original.

    MG Magic has some listed in their web site. A bit pricey but the set of two wiper arms and blades is $79.85. Single arm (9 inch with hooh End Connector) runs $14.95. I’m sure there are a lot of standard VW parts houses that carry what you need. Also have you tried Mid America Motorworks? I know they have them because I ordered a set for mine. Since my chassis is from a 71 beetle, I just ordered the wiper arms and blades for a 71 bug.

    Post a picture of the attachment of the blade to arm and I’ll at least get you a part number
    you can order locally.

    Bill,

    Here is a picture of what I have.  I think I may have found one online
    but the photos are not very clear and I can’t tell for sure so if you
    can provide a part number that’d be awesome!

    Can’t tell from photo. Is that black spot in the center on top a set screw?
    I’ll have access to catalogs in the morning.

    Now you guys are learning!
    Boat supply stores are great resources for a lot of the trim pieces we need!

    Well, sorry to say, you got me.

    After 40 years you’d think you’ve seen all the wierd stuff. Honestly, I’ve

    never laid eyes on a configuration like that. If there is a small tab on the

    arm hidden by that housing on the blade you could use a conventional

    VW blade. I have a marine catalog here also but no windshield products

    listed. A boat shop may be of some help or else replace both the arms

    along with the blades.

    My Duchess came with those blades.

    You cut the bend off the end of the VW wiper arms.
    The blade just slips on and is held by the set screw.

    I am not sure of a source or part number.

    OK…using the information from that web site and some cross referencing
    it appears Bosch has a part number for them.

    Unfortunately there is none in my warehouse chain.
    Good Luck.

    Bill,

    thanks for doing the research.  Much appreciated.  Nice to know there’s an actual part number for future reference.

    Are these the wiper blades that everyone is using as opposed to the stock VW wiper blades? I ask because the ones for my 71 are way different.

    These were listed for the late ’50’s-early ’60’s Beetle.
