Why are there two sets of wiper blades listed on the fordparts website for the C-Max?

The RH blade shows two different sizes as well. 26" and 25"

Anyone know the difference?  I assume the more expensive are "premium blades" whatever does that mean?

I bought the WW25 wiper blade when last replacing the RH wiper blade. Checked amazon and the longer 26" WW-2601-PF shows as compatible to the C-Max and is a couple of bucks cheaper. I don't think it matters too much but it is always nice to clear as much of the windshield as possible.

 

The 2013 owners manual only mentions the WW25 for the Passenger side wiper.

interesting.  I entered my VIN before searching at fordparts.com, so I would have expected the system to know I have a 2013, yet it still shows both RH lengths.

Dang I just bought a couple wipers for the front at Costco on sale.   .  They did not have the 12" rear.   I think I got a 28" and a 24" for the Drivers and passengers respectively.   

 

They are Goodyear.  HOpe they fit.  I haven't popped them into my 2013 Cmax yet.   

 

Weird.   I just read a review on amazon saying that the 24" passenger should be 26."  https://www.amazon.c...e/dp/B00O0DAGUM

 

The guide at Costco said 28"and 24."  Just threw a tape on the blades and they are 28" and 24" respectively.  Go figure.

 

Now where to buy the 12".     I only paid about 4 bucks each for the things and Costco will take em back if they don't fit well.

My wiper blades seem to wipe worse, and now that squeaking sound appeared. I believe I'll go and buy aftermarket blades, you can buy 2+pay shipping for the cost of one from FORD J :happy feet:

I just bought this 12" rear blade from Amazon. Snapped in perfectly, fits perfectly.

When it was freezing, I broke the windshield wiper arm, so had to order a set of 2 (https://www.carid.com/windshield-wiper-arms/). Also, I finally ordered the brand-new wiper blades, as I was constantly postponing the order. As I said before, poor wiping is quite irritating, but not crucial, you know. Though when you breake a wiper arm, there is no way back... haha

Also I got a bottle of cool hydrophobe liquid. Haven't tried it yet, as I'm waiting for better weather to try it out. Yet, seems like I'm good to go with all stuff I needed for my windshield wiping and care...

Has anyone found a way to use standard wiper blades from Rain-X, Michelin, or others? Or are we stuck with having to buy Motorcraft wipers? The wiper arm end on my 2013 Energi has a special connector that does not work with the standard blades available at Walmart, etc.

I bought a set from RockAuto.com, and they came with several fittings, choose the right one and snap them on. Someone posted how to park the wipers in maintainance mode, Hold the wiper switch down and turn off the power button.
