    Wiperblades

    My 2013 Abarth needs new wiper blades. Should I have the dealer install them or do it myself? Is there a brand anyone recommends?

    Brands very so much as everyone has personal preference or grabs what fits their budget at their local supply store of choice. As for having someone do it, I'd suggest do it yourself, it is quick and easy.

    Also... welcome to the forum.

    I like to keep the factory look so I bought mine from the dealer and put them on myself
    2013 Fiat 500 Sport AT, Xpel Ultimate Clear Bra, 3M Crystalline Window Tint, Black top stripes, Black "500" (wide) side stripes. Fiat "500" Stainless door sills by Mopar. BlueTooth music streaming. nGroove Snap 3 cd mount magnetic phone holder. OBDII BlueTooth Torque gauges streaming to smart phone. Now added STS rear sway bar, BMC reuseable air filter and factory spare tire kit with heat shield and tire cover.

    Blast to drive! 25 years newer than last car!

    I bought mine from the parts desk at the dealer also. Recently however the Bosch units were on sale at Napa and air got those. They've been pretty good.

    Found this on the internet. I can't verify these for fit.

    Fiat 500 hatch:
    Driver side - Trico Exact Fit 24 - 1HB

    Passenger side - Trico Exact Fit 14 - 1HB

    Rear window - Trico Exact Fit 12 - A

    Most major auto supply stores, carry replacement blades. Even Walmart.

    I have always used the RainX brand blades on my Pop and have been happy with them. As for installation, they all go on very easy and click into place. If you're uncomfortable doing this yourself go to any Advance Auto parts or Autozone, they'll swap the blades out for free.

    Most auto parts stores will install them for you if you buy their blades.

    I have blades on Amazon subscription, every 4 months new ones come in and I install them. Super easy.

    No one wants to get stuck in the rain with crappy wiper blades, and no stock at the local stores.
