I trying to replace the rubber wiper blades on my 2006 cruiser. I have done it before but can’t remember where I got my replacements at. Can anyone offer up any help or ideas.
Thanks
Dave

I ordered:Anco N-12R Wiper Blade Refill from Amazon, they fit perfectly on our 2006 CD 22, except having to pinch the metal frame in slightly at each anchor point to retain the wiper. With than minor mod these work perfectly.

I bought some universal blades from Costco, Goodyear brand I think, and the correct adapters were in the package to make them fit onto the original arms. They are cheap - like eight or nine bucks each - and they perform well. The ones that work for me are 14".

I made some minor adjustments to the adjustable ends of my original arms to get the blades to lay in the right position but as I recall it was easy to make them work. Now when I replace them every couple of years they just snap right on.

My 1996 CD25 is an oddball, though, so it might not be so simple for yours.

I modified some standard car blades that work perfectly. At work we had some extra wiper blades I was going to throw out for a fleet vehicle that no longer exists. I looked at them and compared them to blades on our 2007 22' cruiser. The rubber is identical, but the stainless steel ribs are wider in the standard automotive blade. I slid the wider ribs out, cut the rubber blade to the same length as the original c-dory blade. I used the metal ribs from the original, slid them into the new rubber. I put the new blade into the wiper arm but it wanted to slide back and forth, so I closed the ends with a little dab of black shoe goo on each of the ends. They're good as factory new now.

A little DIY fabrication seems to be the norm. I bought a set of quality 26 inch wipers because the price was actually cheaper than just buying refill blades. I chopped one in half and replaced the blades on my CD 16. So I still have a spare. It's a bit of a pain to have to fiddle with them when they are designed for a snap-on/snap-off change (if you could only find the part), but new blades are always nice.

I just bought an electric wiper motor to replace my hand operated port wiper. I think I may even wire it to use the self-park feature. The decadence aboard the Limpet continues.

Nappa Part Number 6-1233. I just bought one this morning and it was easy to replace and fit perfectly on my 1999 cruiser with manual wipers.

Some earlier posts listed the part number as 60-1233 and when I went to Nappa, I was told that was the old part number and the number is 6-1233.
