I bought the wipers at Costco...$7.99 per...One problem, they seem to be made for the wiper arm that ends in a J, not the wiper arm that ends in a post...3B1 955 409 C vs 3B1 955 408 C

Who knew that the part changed happened in mid-model year 2002?

Anyone get these to attach properly or do I just return them?

FWIW the rear window arm is the J type, the new blade went on just fine.

TIA

I haven't tried those yet, but.... Valeo SL wipers drop right on, no adapter needed.
RockAuto carries them, for (currently) ~$9 each.
NOTE: Their catalog lists the SL21 as fitting both sides - this is incorrect. SL21 for left side, and SL19 for right side (you'll need to manually search the site for the 19" blade, due to said catalog error.)
They currently don't seem to have the SL19 listed on their site at all - and, the SL21 is nearly out of stock.

ECS carries a Valeo set for $28: Volkswagen Passat B5 FWD 1.8T Wiper Blades - Page 1 - ECS Tuning
