    Last week i changed the front wipers and now i've noticed that the
    service guy gave me shorter wipers. Although they do cover the whole
    windscreen, the wiper on the driver's side (left hand side) does not
    pass over the automatic wiper sensor (Peg 306 Year 2000). For this
    reason the automatic function does not work since the sensor thinks
    that rain is still pouring.

    I know that all i need to do is to get longer wipers, but since i do
    not have the user's manual, i do not know what size they should be.

    Can any one kindly check for me.....

    The wipers are 2 different sizes, one is 20" the other 22" . I think the
    longer one goes on the drivers side.

    True, at least on LHD cars. Sorry, I don't know for RHDs.
    The assignments of wipers should be written on any good wipers package. I do
    prefer both Bosch & Valeo (often sold under the Marchall brand here, but we
    all know it's Valeo indeed, moreover it's written on wipers).

    just replaced mine with a 22"(driver)/20" pair - Bosch. I used a refill at
    the back.

    It's 50 and 55 cms. I know it's about the same, but a french car uses the
    metric system.
