Bosch Aerotwin Flat Set A949S 26/26

The Bosch Aerotwin Flat Set A949S 26/26 provides a clearer, smoother and quieter wiping performance than conventional wiper blades. Features built in aerodynamic spoiler and new technological tensioned metal strip for precise uniform distribution of pressure along the wiping edge. This helps to keep the blade closer to the windscreen, ensuring clear vision at high speeds and reduced wind noise.

what car are these for?

winter is coming and it alway ruins my wipers

Apparently my Corsa has a 26" and a 15" so hopefully I can cut one down. Worth a punt for £5 even if I can only use one of them.

I don't think you can easily cut these down.

Great price though.

Its worse than that they are for sidepin fitting wiper arms so won't fit at all.

Most cars use the hook type fitting, these are very niche.

Great. Thank you

They fit nothing but a merc bought them at the weekend opened them before reading, dont think i can take them back now

VW aero wipers Thank you!

Thanks, hopefully fit Mercedes ml w164

A lot of cars from 2003 onwards starting using Aero blades, then "updated" models from about 2006 onwards. Not too many cars use pairs of 26" blades, can probably count them on your hands, but a good few will use a 26" and a 22" or 26" and 19" etc.

Must say these Bosch wipers (especially the hook arm) seem to be overhyped by a lot of people, the build quality isn't the best (known a lot of rubbers to peel off) and compared to the trupart and wipac they aren't as good wiping as they only tend to have 2 arms holding the rubber in place whereas the trupart/wipac will have 4.

Voted hot though as they are cheap for what they're usually priced at.

Hi will these fit my ford focus as i believe mine have side pins!!! (main wiper is 26)

VW aero wipers Thank you!



Some VW's take 21" 20" or 21" 19" combinations.

"works out at £2.50 a blade" .... thanks for doing the maths for us thickos

Just put your reg. Number in the number plate on Halfords site and it tells you which blades fit

Yeah, £5 a pair is way too expensive. But two at £2.50 per blade is a bargain.

no problem saved you wasting the battery in you calculator

Great spot OT, thanks! Just bought some for my E-Class Merc.

Just bought some... Thanks op! Heat from me.

24" singles also available for £3, will fit a C Class

halfords.com/mot…ard

great spot ordered thanks

Easily cut down to the size you need then glue the end back on, simples.

They don't fit my car but tempted to buy just because of the deal!

Just checked a Ford OEM blade(think they're Bosch aero) to find it's not simples. You'd be cutting off sections which hold the ends on(and the blade in place) and cutting steel and rubber to different lengths. I may be tight though I'll save my money elsewhere.

Yes, they'll fit drivers side, they're side pin fitting.

Just because you don't find it easy, doesn't means others don't Sharp hacksaw straight through then glue the cap back on, if you are capable that is, money saved.

Side pin fittings seem common on VW's but 26"?? According to this eBay seller they only fit Merc's:

ebay.co.uk/itm…16c

Still a fantastic find for somebody! Heat!

Hot price, on an upgrade to both my cars failed and juttered, be warned may not be a great fit ....

Nearly got excited, my E Class needs 24" ones which are the A939S for £36.99

Excellent price though, heat given

Just bought a set of wipers for our Xsara Picasso, they were Side Pin 26" cost 34 quid from Halfords, they will be going back tomorrow, The Halfords own ones I bought Squeal like mad too so was going to return them for Bosch ones anyway thanks Op

£34 to £39.99 for a set of wiper blades, you are having a laugh . Talk about see mugs coming.

Aero wipers don't have arms holding the rubber in place.

If you have a 26" blade as one of your wiper set then buy this bargain and simply purchase the other blade as a single. That's simples! As long as the fitting is appropriate.
