Can I use a generic back windsheild wiper blade, I live far from a dealer, what is the size..mine did not come said standard size?
Yes you can, I'd recommend the Bosch Icons, it's the beam type. Found at any local auto parts store. 24A for the driver side, 16A for the passenger side. But if you can't find those any 24" and 16" blades will work.
I would never use the dealer for basic repair items. they cost too much. use quality aftermarket parts. most parts stores will install wiper blades for free, but the dealer will charge you.
