Check Vehicle Fit

Rain-X Latitude Windshield Wiper Blades offer great visibility in rain, sleet and snow. Use on either originally-installed standard or curved-style Windshield Wiper Blades. The Rain-X Latitude® blade is sold with a preinstalled small j-hook adapter and contains multi-adapter for side pin, large j-hook and bayonet windshield wiper blade arms.

Rain-X Latitude Windshield Wiper Blades feature a contoured design that applies even pressure along the entire windshield wiper blade length. The windshield wiper blade is made of specially blended graphite coated rubber that delivers a smooth, clean, chatter-free wipe with each pass of the wiper blade. WIth a built-in aerodynamic spoiler, drag, noise, and wind lift are significantly reduced.

The ice resistant frame helps to prevent snow and ice build-up by eliminating exposed metal components. The rubber-encased substructure helps to increase wiper flexibility and adherence to the windshield in harsh conditions.

Product Features:
  • Easy Installation
  • High-Performance Wipe
  • Ice Resistant Frame

        I used the website and entered the year, make and model of my car. This was the recommended wiper blade, but it doesn't fit. Not even close :(

                I bought a set of these for my car and my wife's car. Both sets streaked right from the start. I returned them for another pair, and within a week the new set also started streaking. The blades on my wife's car tore within 8 months and had to be replaced. Rain-X makes great windshield washer solvents, but not very good wipers.

                      Hard to install. Even solicited help from employees of Advance Auto Parts and they had trouble. Worked fine at first. After 3 months they leave water lines and started to squeak on return. Passenger side blade would fall off arm when raised to wash car. Save yourself time and money and purchase another brand.

                              The directions for replacing the clips that hold down the wiper blade need to be more in depth. These clips were the only problem that I had to fight to get the one off too replace them with the new clip !

                                    In order to add the adaptor needed to make it work with my 2010 535, it was nearly impossible to pull the original configuration apart.

                                        I have a Pontiac G8 GT. The GM part # for the wiper blades are 92177918 and 92177917.
                                        How can I find what the length is for the blades other than measuring them? I would measure them but I don't have access to the car at the moment.

                                        I purchased this product for my 1995 Camaro as a replacement for worn wipers and can not figure out how to install them. The vehicle has a "reverse" J hood and they seem to not go on. Any suggestions!

                                          For step by step instructions I recommend that you go to your nearest Advance Auto Parts store and purchase a repair manual.
