    As you can see from the pics my blades can't fit properly. There's another similar fitting but it doesn't fit. Left it with this one.

    Every time I drive on the motorway, it pushes it off because of the wind. Just worries that one day it might come off while driving.

    Anyone else using Michelin blades? [​IMG][​IMG]

    Looks like the wrong blade/adapter.

    This wiper blade is for this type of arm / lock:

    Looks like the wiper arm is designed for a physically wider wiper.
    The wiper can probably move around on that arm, and may lead to wiper arm ‘mounting rod’ / spindle snapping off.
    The ‘lift’ could well be due to blade moving around on its spindle.

    Looks to me like there is a piece missing there.

    There is, it's attached to the wiper arm and locks onto the blade.
    But that blade and arm in the picture are not meant to go together.

    Only ever use Bosch or MB, they fit perfectly every time

    I thought so. I got another one but it doesn't fit properly.

    Have you used Michelin blades before?

    Also forgot to say its fitted on a c class.

    Thanks for that. I will try and find that fitting tonight. I have to say I didn't Google hard enough.

    Patiently checking out fitting PH-3, finally realised its two pieces which I have to remove to fit it to the arm first before fitting on the blade!

    It's definitely more fiddly than bosch. Oh well, go back to Bosch ones after this. :)

    Thanks again for everyone's help!
