      Maruti Ritz - Is there a difference in size between left and right wipers?

      I have a 2009 Maruti Ritz VXi. I got an odd feeling after the recent wiper change. Turns out the left wiper is shorter than the right. Then I compared it to a few other similar sized Marutis. They seem to follow the similar long-short formula. But I do not remember the wipers being of different size in the past.

      Is my mind playing games or is this the case? Only the older generation vehicles will give the answer.

      Yes, left ones are shorter in most cars! But why so much thought for a wiper? its good if it solves the purpose.
      There are many cars which have just one wiper! No, No, not only the small ones alone like the Kwid or the Nano, I remember Toyota Etios also falls in that category.

      This is not about mere sizes, but a perceived difference from past version in the same car.

      Now there is a small triangle in between the driver and passenger that is not wiped.

      It just makes me irritated. Once a worm gets into your mind, it will not stop bothering until removed.

      The wipers are placed vice versa.

      One is short so that it will not clash with other wiper or go outside the windshield.

      No, that's not happening. Look at the picture above. If at all, it has become shorter at the bottom.

      Wiper is placed correctly, check the rubbers, sometimes even in new wipers the rubber moves from the thin metal strip.

      The wipers in this case are correct.

      Sizes, in almost all cases that use the twin wiper arrangement, will vary. End of the day its how its designed. There is nothing anyone can do about it.

      Happens all the time with cars equipped with this type of wipers. Maybe you started noticing this triangle after the worm got into your mind.
