Default 2017 Q7 rear wiper

Guys--did you realize it is impossible to find out the 2017 Q7's rear wiper size?! Even the part department of my dealer doesn't know it; they only know the part # 4M0955425A and that a blade costs $16.

The $16 cost is not ridiculous by dealer standard. The issue is the quality. My car is only 6-month old and garage parked, and the rear wiper is already squeaky.

Also, there was a bit of drama on my front wipers. They are ok but I want to upgrade to PIAA silicone ones. I've had wonderful experience with the PIAA. I figured their sizes are 20" and 26" but Amazon said the 20" and 26" PIAA silicone ones aren't a fit. I almost brushed it aside as a mistake, but eventually double-checked on PIAA.com. Well Audi changed the connector type and now only the more expensive (and supposedly more advanced) Si-Tech wipers fit. I'm glad I checked, but now am left a bit more uncertain toward the rear. I can always measure the length but what if the connector doesn't fit?

Anyone ideas/experiences?

So the 20'' and 26'' Si-Tech's will fit the front?

Yes that's what the PIAA website says. Only Si-Tech, not the silicone or the vogue stuff

My rear wiper has been driving me insane for months now! I called Bosch directly and they said that the cars are too new to make rear wipers for.

Didn't know anything about PIAA until I read your post. The wipers look fantastic but do I read you right that the Si-Tech are not silicone?

No they are all silicone. The difference is in the frame style. Super silicone has a traditional frame. Si Tech is one curved piece and more expensive. Vogue is a hybrid.

Check out amazon reviews on super silicone you'll see how impressive it is.

My rear wiper has been squeaking from Day 1. I ignored it as it was a rare annoyance. But now I am going to bring it to the attention of the dealer as I am going in for 3rd row recall fix.

Was just about to post the same.... have been having a hard time finding a replacement! Wiper is skipping and the imperfect wipe drives me nuts whenever we have it on. Ugh. Had to have the front wipers also replaced for the same issue at our last warranty repair visit and wish I had asked them to take a look at the rear...
