Cleaning the Windscreen / Replacing Wiper Blades

Post by Qash » Wed Jul 08, 2015 7:56 am

All the places I've looked at, including Bosh's own online catalog, said that the QQ J11 should use the AR 653 S (For LHD vehicles) which is 650/400.Seems a bit tricky.Edit: Online catalog said AR 141 S for RHD vehicles which is also 650/400.

Don't know how I missed this thread! There is a FAQ about it already... a bit basic thoughhttp://www.qashqaiownersclub.co.uk/forum/faq-w ... c1222.html Might swap it with this thread.

Dave, I bought mine (4 sets) here.Qash, AR653S has shorter wiper (400mm) instead of required 425mm. I prefer rather longer (450mm - AR652S) than shorter. Passenger's visibility is anyhow bad when windshield is dirty and making it even worse is not really my intention.

I agree with you Dan.The passenger side "view" is bad enough without putting something even shorter on.The only place i can find a list for the genuine "nissan" originals is, ironically, ebay.Sadly they have neglected to state the physical dimensions of the blades so i can't even use that as a reference guide.288904EA0A & 288904EA1A for RHD models.Considering the J11 is now coming up to 18 months of run out production it's a bit poor how badly the market place hasn't kept up.I'm also a bit annoyed seeing the price of the ones you've linked to as they are considerably cheaper than the equivalent in the UK.

Dan, I have taken the Bull by the Horns and ordered some Bosch Blades to the Spec you stated, I done a quick check and all looks good with the passenger side one being that little longer especially if you have them already in use.
As you specified it looked like "auto-und-teile.de" were the cheapest on the basic cost but plus Post. I went the way I know with "Amazon" and got them for a‚¬25,33 (AR652S) + a‚¬8,89 (H301) Post was free Total = a‚¬34,02 (UK 24) which I thought was a reasonable cost but just a liitle more expensive.
I checked around here and at ATU which as you know is one of the biggest motor accessory stores in Germany just for the AR652S the cost was a‚¬41 (UK 30). On checking Halfords UK online the AR652S were not listed and the H301 were a‚¬14 (UK 9,99) - so hopefully all will work our OK - Thanks Dave

I also took the plunge yesterday afternoon and picked some bosch blades up from eurocarparts (which is near where i work). £19.92 for the pair. Halfords wanted £35 for the same!?! The front driver side blade is 26" and specifies the J11E qashqai on the box. The 17" one i put on the passenger side doesn't specify any Nissan vehicles currently in production but fits pretty well.I suspect i might have got away with an 18" one on the passenger side (which also doesn't mention the QQ on the box) and i might go that route next time.

AlleyCat, I have just got back from our Dealer here (Germany LHD) and raised the Wiper Question with the Stores. The Nissan Nos. that I got were #287904EA0A / #288904EH0A / #288904EH1A and wait for it sit down the cost from Nissan rounded up was a‚¬17 / a‚¬36 / a‚¬32 which is a total of a‚¬85 (UK 61). "Your Nos were : 288904EA0A & 288904EA1A for RHD models".Your comment was : "The front driver side blade is 26" (660) and specifies the J11E qashqai on the box. The 17" (430) one i put on the passenger side doesn't specify any Nissan vehicles currently in production but fits pretty well. I suspect i might have got away with an 18" (457) one on the passenger side (which also doesn't mention the QQ on the box) and i might go that route next time".If you go the 660 / 457 combination be careful as in IMHO it looks a bit tight length wise and could clash when the wipers are wiping and or vibrating on the windscreen. The Option I got from our Dealer was called a "Retrofit" - Bosch Aerotwin AR653S (650 / 400) and H301 (300) for QQ's from 12.13. So I will stick with what I have ordered and see how it works out AR652S (650 / 450), I hope this is not too confusing as there are now a lot of numbers Floating around - Dave

AlleyCat, yesterday was Rain-x Day and today the new Bosch Aerotwin Wiper Blades AR652S (650 / 450) were installed. The space for these as Dan mentioned are OK they work and do not clash with each other. I think what you mentioned might well work with the 26" (660) & 18" (457) but then there is a difference of 17mm / 2 = 8,5mm which will reduce the gap shown in Pic 1 by that amount from what I have installed. So take to look at the pics showing the assembly and you can judge for yourself it could be tight - Dave Please remember these are LHD Pics : For any members that are not that DIY minded it takes at the maximuim 5 mins to do this Job. Take a look at this Bosch Video which might help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBkufSjg-qU

Thanks Dave.I figured based on the /2 bit they might just squeeze in.I'll see how i get on with the 26" and 17" and decide from there.I couldn't find the equivalent to match Dans suggestion for RHD.Most UK sites don't seem to carry the option.

AlleyCat, lets see if we can finalise this Topic with regard to Specs. I have searched the webs and you can find the Nos. Dan mentioned if you spend time searching. Attached is the Data I have been looking for, one is for Great Britain RH & Deutschland Germany LH and the Dimensions are the same but there are different Nos for the Front Sets GB #3397014141 AR141S & Germany #3397118911 AR653S but with the same dimensions of 650 / 400. The Rear is the same No. for both countries #3397004629 H301 and a Dimension of 300. Please take a look at this Bosch Site Information and also there is a Bosch App that I Downloaded with exactly the same Data. So hopefully we are now there but is there really a physical difference between the RH & LH Sets ? - Dave
