    I can't seem to find anywhere online, and Halfords don't seem to have them.

    The ones fitted to my car at the moment seem to be made by Bosch, but I can't see a part number.

    Have you tried speaking to a stealership parts counter? This is a consumable item and is probably shared with other models such as 126, 129, 140, 190, 202 etc.

    That is excellent, thanks. Inchcape have them, is the price listed for one blade or a set of two?

    I tried to order a set on their site, but it just gives me 404 errors when I tried to check out.

    I think I got 2 from MB Croydon for about £15.

    I'd always try MB first for small parts, they're pretty reasonable and are guaranteed to fit. Its only bigger stuff where the price differential gets a bit tricky.

    Just read that Partsspecialist is an MB supplier - there you go..

    Why don't you just by some Bosh wiper blade inserts and cut those to the correct length?

    I'm not fiddling around with that; I just want to fit a new blade.
