Toyota Corolla windshield wiper replacement
What are you folks recommendations for frugal windshield wiper replacement? I can buy the whole wiper unit at a store like Target or my chain retail auto parts store, but each side costs $12 or more, each. Some brands cost as much as $25 per side. Seems a little pricy for what I really need, just a new strip of rubber. Is it possible these days to purchase just the blade inserts? Where?
And if I’m able to find just the insert for sale, is there an easy way to remove the old inserts? When I’ve done this before, I usually end up damaging my fingers in the process. Is there a special tool available that holds those two little pins inward so the insert can be slipped out?
