I'm having trouble finding a wiper blade that both fit and does a proper job.

First i bought a wiper blade of the new slimmer type, it has some kind of fastening that closes over the wiper arm so the assembly was very easy.
BUT! A couple of days later when i needed to use the wiper i realised that i does not wipe as it should when it gets closer to the a pillar, i think the arm is to close to the window not generating enough pressure against the windscreen.

So i went back to the store and bought a wiper blade of the old type with the metal frame, it came with two types of clips and one of them fits perfectly in the wiper arm and klicks in place nicely. But when it is attached to the wiper blade it can not clip in place because the wiper arm can't be lifted high enough to rotate the wiper blade 45° that is needed for the clip to properly click in place.

Because the first blade i bought was so easy to mount i did not keep the clip from the original wiper blade, if i had it probably would be easy to use that clip with the latest bought wiper blade, so my question now is. What brand of wiper blade has a mounting clip that works with the wiper arms on a city bug?

The one I recommend is Bosch Aero Twin AR650S, l never polish the screen but clean the rubber to remove the dirt that ingrained in the rubber. You can buy a set but I found the rear not so good.

I can not find any wind screen wipers, only rear window ones.

Thanks!

If you choose your car and then wipers in the menu system the front wipers are not listed, perhaps something to look into.
