    What do yal do when time to replace window wipers? I had a honda that I could buy the wiper blade inserts from the dealer for $8 bucks. Never had to replace the actual blades. Is this an option for the tundra?

    Go OEM. I just bought some for my 4Runner from the dealer and they were $11 each. Guy at the parts counter said the entire blade was like $90 each so don't take them off, get the inserts. I can't imagine the Tundra inserts are much different, price-wise.

    the link is for tundra wipers, which apparently don't have the option to buy just the insert. unlike the 4runner, looks like we have to buy the whole blade for the tundra.
