    windshield wiper size

    Hi,
    I want to change the windshield wiper ( front) of my V.

    I went to Walmart store this morning and I found a bunch of wiper sizes.
    There, I tried the "automatic help selector" which adviced me to take the size 20" . But on some websites, I was adviced to take 19". I know it is not a big difference but I would like to know which size is better.

    Surprisingly, I measured the wiper at around 18"( if I measured them right)!!
    Perhaps, the previous owner put them.


    Thank you for your time.

    Original size is 20" for the driver side and 19" for the passenger side for 1997-2001 CRV's.


    Honda measures the blades in milimeters.

    Drivers Side 500mm approx 19.68 inches
    Passenger Side 475mm approx 18.7 inches

    You can easily go 1" larger than original on both driver and passenger wiper, on the 1st gen V's. I did. It makes a nice difference in the amount of area cleared. No interference issues either.
    99 V 151k miles, 04 V 62k miles - Both red, of course.

    I use 20" Michelin Radius I think it probably depends on the wiper blade though. It's tough to know from the selector books my Strauss had 2 books one for Michelin and theirs the strauss book said 23" driver side and 20" passenger I checked the Michelin one and it said 20, 20 so just goes to show you look at the manufacturers measurements not a third party.

    2nd gen's have different sized wipers than the 1st gen's.

    Yeah on 2nd generation's I think it's 20 20 in the front and 12" at the back remember those numbers and you never have to look through those stupid manuals in the auto shops.

    3rd Gen (2008) wiper size

    26" and 16" and make sure they are the curved ones. The straight ones will not work. I ended up just buying the refills from the Honda dealer.

    Indeed a straight one won't work. I ended up getting a Bosch icon, which is curved, b/c my original blade was 4 yr old so I don't want to put a new refill on it not knowing how long the blade itself can last. I got it on Amazon for $18.00.
