Ok, I am needing help.

I have ordered a few wiper blade refills and all have been to narrow.

I have looked and looked and can't seem to find a part number for them.

Any help would be much appreciated.

13" Anco is what I do know.

Why not just replace the whole blade, man? I don't fool with refills because of the fact that they are NOT one size fits all.

The reason I asked was that the OEM blade had only one red button while aftermarket had two. Yours is an original and refills should be available as such. It has been quite a few years but those look like Trico refills. Anco had the button to remove the bow because the bow blocked the end of the refill. Trico used the notch at the one end to spring out to keep the blade in place.

I would have to change out the wiper arm to make that happen. At least from what I can see, I hate to ruin the arms as they are in good shape.

Also the whole blades are black and will not look good.

Thanks, I will see what I can find under Trico.

Ok I was able to find some NOS blades, so I ordered them for now. But the hunt is on for New ones.

The Trico # LP13 in case anybody else is looking.

Well still wiating for my NOS wiper blades, I spent some time and money buying diffrent brands of wiper blades. I found that AutoZone's Valuecraft fit the best and with little modifying(cutting to fit and some glue for the Rubber part) they seem to work good. So I shall see how everything holds for the next two weeks.

Note: this was the whole Blade, I simply removed the insert and tossed the rest.
