09 Altima Sedan wipers

ok, i am really confused. everything i can find tells me that i need a 26'' and a 17'' wiper blade. i thought the 17 looked a little small, but whatever, i got it anyway. they are not even close to fitting. anyone know the real size or have a similar problem?

well, we need a 28 and a 17 inch blade. not 26. it'll work but it won't be optimal for a clear window.

just bought two complete sets (two 28s and two 17s) for $50 shipped. can't beat that price for rain-x lattitude wipers.

there is absolutely no way that 17 is right. there is about a foot and a half of empty space on the passenger side. i think there are 2 x 28 on there now, but the pass side looks too big. ugh...already bought the 17 and the 26 on ebay.


and i live in Buffalo...nuff said. im lucky if i get 1 year out of blades.

dude the specs are 17 and 28. there is a way they are right....because they are. you already bought one. on the other hand, the 26 you bought is two inches too short. you may have some spots that are not wiped no matter how many times you turn them on. id return that one and ask for the 28 if i were you.

ive managed almost a year and a half on the original set in long island. thats pretty decent. rains all summer, snows a lot in the winter, and foggy whenever it wants to be so the wipers get plenty of use. which ones did you wind up with?

I'm on 2+ years in VT with the OEM wiper blades. I just RainX the windshield and set the wipers to intermittent wipe. I think I'm getting to the point where I need to look at new ones. Lattitude or OEM is the route I'm going.

latitude is what i got. much cheaper and probably a little better than oems. the problem with rain x fluid is that it builds up on the blades and windshield and doesnt allow the water to be brushed off. i may try to scuff the stock blades or clean them thoroughly before installing the next set. see if it works. ill try some degreaser mixxed with soapy water.

well, i know how to use a tape measure. i want to make sure there isnt something weird with the position of my wiper or something. i thought maybe there were different positions or something depending on when it came out. and with all due respect, i understand that the spec is 17'' but more than half of my passenger side would not be wiped if i used that. maybe i will post pics later. the reason i was confused is because the one on there now (may be, may not be the original since i bought it used) is too long by a little bit. i wanted to see what it was supposed to be.

if there is a foot and a half of extra space then the person before you put too small of a wiper there. the 17 goes on the passenger and the 28 on the driver side.

i know that, thats how i set it up. i will take some pics when i get home. does someone have a picture of the wiper like halfway up? it just seems odd that mine is so far off.

edit:
i just looked at the pic above again and that is not how mine looks. the part where you clip the wiper in is much closer to the center of the car on mine.

you think there is an incorrect wiper arm on there rather than an incorrect wiper blade?
