    I need to replace a damaged wiper blade.
    Is it a matter of going to Halfords for 21" blades?
    Or is it best to go to Audi for the exact fitment?

    As far as I know halfords don't stock the Audi specific fitting, or if they do it will take them three goes to get you the right one from what I have heard! It's a dealer job really, although I think there are some ebay options too - have search in this forum for wiper blades and find a link. Other wise they are £30ish for the front pair.

    I bought a pair from GSF, from memory they came out around £15.

    Cheers

    You can get Halfords own to fit the Audi. One of mine broke on the motorway and I was forced to stop at Halfrauds - their wipers are overpriced and rubbish. Best bet is to get genuine Audi ones or CLICK HERE

    Go to GSF chap. £15 and are easy to fit...well, sort of, once i'd broken the inner arm clip on the pax side but drivers side was a doddle once know how.

    Just lift wiper off the screen (stating obvious there - sorry)
    Press down on the clip in centre - this will pop up slightly at about a 45 deg angle.
    Slide out blade - New one on, reverse all - job done!
