just go to your local auto store and pick up a pair of silicone curved wipers (22" and 24"). I've used RainX before and they worked great. Now I just purchased a pair of Bosch and they're also as great and look much better than the original Volvo wipers. <p>RainX Latitude<br><IMG SRC="http://aycu06.webshots.com/image/8605/2001934381057725002_rs.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>

Re: (Needsdecaf)

The attachment point does work, even though it looks different. I actually just put a new set on 2 weeks ago from my dealer and thought the same thing. Had no problem putting them on, but my lengths were the same.

Re: EXACT replacement wiper blades??? (B.G.)

Has anyone ever found EXACT replacements for (as sleek and low-profile as) the originals?<p>I've seen RainX and Ikon and they tower above the surface of the glass (blade is taller) plus the latch is bulkier, yuck. The Valeo @ TR site didn't look any better...

Re: EXACT replacement wiper blades??? (Turbo Country)

I've been using <A HREF="http://www.ipdusa.com/Volvo-S60/Exterior/Wipers-&-Washers/Wiper-Blades-Silicone-PIAA/p-74-399-507-1400" TARGET="_blank">http://www.ipdusa.com/Volvo-S6...-1400</A>/ for over a year now with excellent results. I also use Rain X as well.
