Default 2010 civic wiper replacement

I have a 2010 civic coupe and I just want to know where in the world I
can get replacement wipers for this thing? I have only had it for 8
months, and the factory wipers aren't doing a good job.

The manual shows how to replace the wiper (just the rubber part), but
in all the auto stores, you get a complete assembly. That seems like a
waste of money for me to buy a $25 wiper assembly just for the little
rubber strip.

Should I be replacing the entire assembly? The method that it attaches
to the arm uses just a little square that you push to release it. I
don't recognize this as any type of standard blade attachment method
that you can find on your typical wiper blades. Is this maybe some
non-US method?

Also, The length of the blades... The manual doesn't say, but it looks
like the driver side is 28". I haven't measured the passenger side
yet. 28" seems like a very long length, and I only found one or two
out of the half a dozen brands in the stores. Is this length just
really popular in my area, or is it more likely that the manufacturers
don't expect anyone to have such a large windshield?

Any advice would be helpful. Thank you.

Thanks.

Frankly, that shocks me. Honda OEM rubber inserts have historically
been the best thing on the market.

So buy the Honda inserts and see if maybe you didn't just get a bad set
by accident on the new car. They're only a few bucks.

They did when they were new. The rubber part is worn out. You need to
replace the worn-out part, which is called a "refill". Your local Honda
dealer has them for about $5-$10 each.

If, you decide, in a moment if insanity, to gamble with aftermarket wiper
blades, do not discard your OEM blades!!! They are very expensive, and you
will eventually want to put them back on once you discover how crappy most
aftermarket wipers are.

Better than anything else I've ever tried.

OP should also clean the windshield glass (and the refills) with lots of
Windex and scrubbing, just in case there's a film that's interfering with
proper rubber contact.
