Wiper Blade sizes

I couldn't find anything on search about this... I just bought Bosch ICON blades for my 2016 pilot. The Bosch Website and Amazon both tell me that the 22B blade is the correct blade for the passenger side. Rain-X and the Amazon website tell me that I need a 24" blade for the passenger side. I went with what Bosch recommended and it works, but it's obviously shorter. I think it will work, but I'm not sure why they don't offer a 24" that will fit. Judging from the fit when the blades are at rest, it looks like maybe the two blades would contact each other and that's why they go smaller?

Also, for the rear blade, Bosch does not have a recommended blade and Amazon tells me the Bosh R1417 does not fit.

Has anyone else noticed this? Has this already been discussed and I just missed it?

Thanks

Why not measure your OEM blades? Good job on the ICON's - they are the best wiper out there IMO. I'm at 18 months with OEM blades because I rarely need them since I use aquapel on my windshield. I apply it once every summer and it lasts the year. Best $10 investment for safety I've found.

I’m always dismayed when the owner’s manual does not contain this type of information!

I'm older so I drive faster as I have less time left to waste.

I find that whenever I use aftermarket blades I have to swap them out more often, <2years vs OEM >3 years. I normally buy Honda OEM blades and put them into the stock housings. Easy enough for about $20.

OEM blade lengths for the 2016 Pilot are 650mm (25.6") for the driver's side and 600mm (23.6") for the passenger's side. Some aftermarket wiper makers round those numbers up and some round them down. Longer blades can hit the windshield molding or not leave enough room for an accumulation of snow next to the molding in winter.

My 2003 Pilot takes 600mm (23.6") and 550mm (21.7") blades, so I use 22" and 20" Bosch blades.

Why not buy OEM and then you don't have to worry about what brand fits etc. I don't get it!

Wiper Blade sizes

On the 05 I go longer in drivers side than stock simply due to my height.
Next time you see a CRV, take a look. One wiper is 26 the other 16.

Do you really need to have the top ~2" of the windshield cleared?

Ok, then I will ask.....why post? The one that drives the car should.

OE inserts, IMHO, are the way to go. Someone already posted that and I'm just adding that I agree with that option.

Some may want to change to the beam type blades that can't get filled up with ice and snow like the OE type or they may prefer the more aerodynamic design.
Also, it's a bit easier to simply swap complete blades rather than fiddle with replacing the inserts.
Certain dealers will include "free" installation of the OE inserts with purchase.
Are you still buying the OE inserts for your '89 Accord, or even the '07 Accord or '07 Pilot?

The 07 and the 16 Pilot,YES I am. The others by the time I got them the OE's blades were long gone and if you don't have the right style the OE "inserts" don't quite fit right.

BTW, the 78 Ford and the 66 Chevy....not even sure OE inserts are offered. The old Ford - dump truck - I could care less about. The Chevelle, I order them from OPG when I'm ordering other odds and ends as it is hard to find chrome wipers anymore.

Again, IMHO if you still have the OE "holders", getting OE inserts is the best option....if not mix/match, round up/round down and hope for the best.
