Just noticed the Model 3 wiper blades are now on the Canadian Tesla Shop. $30 Canadian ea.
There is also some new stuff in Apparel.
For those who order in the EU, on Amazon.de these BOSCH wipers are confirmed to work for the M3, and only 20€:https://www.amazon.de/dp/B013VDWXTI/
I got some cheap (~$25) ones from amazon that got good ratings and they've been fine. Does anyone have experience with the 100% silicone wipers? I know they're more costly, but If a wiper works, it is worth it.
U.S. site is here, https://shop.tesla.com/product/model-3-wiper-blades
Great Find, ShaunD, especiallly since they don't yet show on the Exterior Accessories for Model 3 are here:https://shop.tesla.com/category/vehicle-accessories/model-3#model-3.exte...
I've added the link to model3man's new wiper blade replacement video https://youtu.be/pb5ECNfSo9k in the comments.
Do most people order the replacements through Tesla? Mine have gone through 2 winters now and are pretty shot. I could use a new pair for sure.
I saw they had some at Costco, but they did not list 2018 model, only 2019 and 2020. Are they the same part?
Each blade is $23 or $46 for the set. There are plenty of 3rd party vendors that fit fine for a lot cheaper.
Maybe the $46 set is an April Fools joke.
Thanks for putting this up. I ordered from the US Tesla website. My OEM wipers are still workin well after 19 months, while aftermarket wipers seem to stop working well at a year- due to our high UV New Mexico sunshine!
Same as T_Scheen
I just bought the BOSCH Aerotwin wipers. They are identical to the ones I pulled off except the Bosch name printed on it. Even the plastic parts looked like they came from the same mold.
Thanks rob, just ordered a pair
I just checked and each blade is $30. Then I looked at other items and everything in the store has had a price increase!
Nevermind! Pulled up the CA site instead of US. Whew!
I ordered on left and one right on March 31, $67.50 Canadian with tax. Free shipping to Canada. They have already shipped and will be here April 6.
I'll update the post with the US link.
Xtechnor wipers on Amazon $28 a pair work fine. I’ve had them for 5 months now. Foolish to pay these prices!
Selling wiper blades at a huge markup doesn’t seem helpful. There are many 3rd party blades that are comparable in quality and less expensive.
It would be helpful if Tesla sold game controllers that work with all Arcade games past, present, and future. That is something end users would find helpful.
I would rather get silicone blade inserts for the existing wiper frames (create less waste).
@Faz Is that a thing? That would be awesome. I wonder if Tesla considered this. I think Tesla has a patent for lasers to clean the windshield.
@ShaunyD: Keep in mind... I have a 2015 toyota sienna with 68k miles and still have the original wiper blades. You can clean the rubber with some soap and water (as long as the rubber is not cut/torn/cracked). No way any model 3 should need wiper blades replaced unless you are using it to clear ice from your windshield.
I have not used these Sil blades yet, but you need tomfigure out which “claw” your wiper frame uses: http://www.piaa.com/store/c/72-Wiper-Refills.aspx
You can always buy a longer refill and cut it to fit the length you need. Plenty of youtube videos on how to put in new inserts.
Before change the wiper, i would make sure the windshield is clean and the wiper blade is cleaned... keep that money in your pocket and less waste to the environment by tossing your old wiper frames.
@ShaunyD As for what Tesla is “Thinking” most people don’t want to mess with the added effort to swap out an insert. It only takes seconds to pop off the entire frame and replace it with a brand new one. Less SC over head as well...
But for the DIY crowd, I would love to collect old wiper frames and rebuild them with a simple new insert at a fraction of the cost and better quality blade. Tho, any modification we do might void some kind of warranty... tho tesla would have to prove that your aftermarket insert caused a problem (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnuson–Moss_Warranty_Act).
