Wiper Blade Refill?

Are there known sources/part numbers for 986 wiper blade refills, or must one buy the entire wiper blade assemblies?

TIA

since someone brought it up.....

I replaced mine with new wipers. Think it said both sides were 24, but it seems to be missing a bit on the bottom right on the passenger side. Seems the windshield curves too much for the wiper to make contact over there. Is this common or is this the wrong size wiper? It seems like the right size everywhere else except there.

also if you can find them I'd recommend winter wipers. They're made out of better materials so they will last longer than any other wiper since they're designed for extreme climates and they're not expensive.

I have the same issue with the bit on the edge that it misses. Just thought it was the wiper that doesn't quite make it.

The original Porsche (Bosch) wiper that fits the drivers side in the USA is curved upwards - in fact looking at it off the car, it looks like its actually bent. But that's to allow for fitting around the sharp(ish) curve of the screen.
Part #996 628 901 08/1 for our r/h drive cars - left hookers may be different but I wouldn't think so.....

mine have the same issue with a bmw E60. after replacing my wiper blades, with the help of this forum that came stock with a bosch blade wiper, there is a little gap on the passenger side wiper but is okay since the oem wipers are so expensive!
