    Just a little rant really, that's the most difficult wiper blade swap I have ever done!!!!

    Replaced with genuine Audi wipers, the old ones had fused themselves onto the ends of the arms.

    Half hour, all done now but highly frustrating.

    I had trouble doing mine, so instead ask Audi and they fitted for free!

    You obviously don't go to Audi Halesowen then.

    It's hard enough to get a smile or common courtesy out of them.

    I stopped going there after they spoke down to me.

    You do realise the OE ones are made by Veleo and are significantly less anywhere else?

    I paid £30 from the dealer and couldn't find them much cheaper elsewhere.

    Plus I had to pick up other parts so it was convenient.

    Did you try wiperblades.co.uk? I get all mine from there. They are a bugger to replace but once you get the nack of it, it's simple.

    I did look but they were over £30 and I was going to the dealers anyway.

    Why does everybody seem to be having a hard time with these? Mine seemed pretty straight forward to replace. If you squeeze the clip and push inwards before you pull it helps?

    Ditto the comments from A4_Majik; I did all three of my B7 blades and my wife's A3 Sportback blades in <5mins yesterday. Perhaps lucky that both cars are originally from the sunny south, or maybe the blades had been replaced in the not too distant past (despite streaks/smearing), but none were seized...
