Well if you have an 06-07, you're pretty much stuck using OEM replacements. The left 26" blade is a wide insert, which is non-standard, but Peaty seems to have found inserts @ Napa that fit but my local shop didn't carry them.

And if you get whole blade assemblies, they arms use the standard U-hook, but the shape is non-standard so again you're stuck getting OEM blades.

Has anyone confirmed if 08 arms will fit 06-07 yet? I think someone was waiting on parts to try it out.

It's the same on the 08's, I bought Michelin brand at Costco Canada and no dice, drive side is like 1.5X the width of what I'm use to seeing. I'm under US warranty so I should be able to get a set for free I hope.

You can get inserts or the whole blade assemblies from a dealer (online too). They should have the inserts instock, but would probably need to order the blades unless they're a bigger dealer with a good parts dept.

I ordered 3 sets of inserts from subarugenuineparts.com (they seem to have the best rep over on nasioc.com) to have some replacements in hand and make the shipping costs worth it.

Wiper blades are covered under warranty, and have mine replaced by dealer. It, unfortunately depends on dealer, but on paper, its included.

Yeah, it should be covered under warranty, but its more a PITA to go to the dealer just for wipers:( I don't go to the dealer for my regular service.

Luckily, our dealer is very local. I've already had all the wipers replace 2-3 times under warranty.
