Are there multiple types of different windscreen wipers out there, or do they all fit to the one arm?
I am going to change my own wipers as it looks pretty straight forward, and save a few quid doing the job myself.

Just concerned that I might order wipers that don't fit my car - a citroen c3
I've taken a photo of my wiper. Picture attached - a little blurred.
Can anyone tell me is it ok to go ahead and order any tip of wiper for my car?

That looks like a standard fitting to me, check the length before you order them - if you want to save the most money just buy new rubber inserts.

If you buy your replacement wiper blades from a reputable dealer (not e-bay) then there are normally 3 or 4 adaptors to connect the wiper to the arm. These connectors will fit 99% of cars on the road.

Great. Thanks folks. I'm going to order some online. I'll let you know how I get on.
They're cheap as chips. So will be saving a nice few bob.

If you want cheap nasty blades that either don't wipe very well or don't last more than a couple of months many pound shops sell them.
You'd get a good one for £5 or £6 from a local motor factors, that wipes rather than smearing...

Job done. Wipers ordered online and now fitted.

Went for a Universal flat blade. It came with an adaptor as you said.
It's a real easy job to do yourself. Saved a few bob too. Wish I'd started doing it myself earlier.

Why don't they teach practical things like this in school??
