Hi. Has anyone replaced their OEM windshield wipers with third party wipers? I was thinking Rain-X or Bosch but neither seem to have blades for the CX-30. I’m assuming it’s because of the locking mechanism for the wiper arm. Pretty sure most wipers have adapters though.

I may just go with replacing the rubber blade insert. Might be cheaper and easier.

Anyone with any experience in this or want to recommend a brand?

I've not had the car long enough to think about new wiper blades so I can't help you directly.

There do seem to be third-party wiper blade suppliers - but I can only find a rear wiper from Bosch, for example.

Windshield wiper update. I sacrificed a chunk of money in the name of research. Mazda will try everything to make you spend $50+ (CDN) on buying their wiper replacements. The reason why most other third party wipers won’t work well is because of the “wings” on the CX-30 wipers. (Third party wipers lack the aerodynamics but they will work in a pinch.)

Inserts are an option. Mazda will swear up and down they don’t exist. They do. The codes are BDTS-67-333 for the driver’s side rubber insert and DGH9-67-333 for the short passenger side rubber insert. NOTE: BDTS-67-333 is only $10.50(CDN) but the shorter passenger side is $27.29(CDN). Get two long inserts and just cut one of them shorter for the passenger side and save $17! Mazda way overcharge for wipers especially if you’re supposed to replace them every 6 months!

Make sure that if you do this, don’t cut off the hook end of the rubber blade. It needs to click into the wiper.

Here’s instructions for how to replace the wiper:

thanks for you "sacrifice" to provide us with this info. I like the idea of just a refill replacement instead of the whole head assembly which always seems a waste and then you have to dispose of the old head. Refills use to be common place at one time, now they are extremely hard to find. I have found that quite often my wipers last quite a few years, there is tips on YouTube to show you how to "refresh" you wipers to make them last longer.

I finally took a closer look at my wiper system so yesterday I put them in the "service position" for the first time and removed the head and took a few photos (still not have to replace them yet). The washer unit is attached to the arm so it has nothing to do with the wiper head unit. The head is fastened onto the arm with a hook style, just like many others I've replaced in the past on previous vehicles. The head itself looks very similar to the Rain-X style.
