Who makes the OEM wipers? Bosch doesn't make wipers for the T1 anymore according to their 2012/13 catalogue. Bought a pair for $50 at a no-brand store, but they squeak and jumps all over the place. But VW wants $120 for a pair, which is ridiculous.

Have you asked for the wiper rubber only kit? Takes ten minutes tops to slide the old rubbers out and the new rubbers in and the kit comes complete with new plastic end caps.

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]

Unfortunately not, I have heard about this but I didn't realize it was from the dealer. And now the old wipers are thrashed.

Next time I will buy just the rubber. Good advice.

Here in the UK the kit costs about 15-20. I know your prices usually are, shall we say, just a little higher!!
