A friend had a similar problem with his 06 LR3 where his head lights and rear wiper would not go off. They had to order a new stalk. It did take 3 months to get. His real problem also was that at time the lights would come on with the car shut off and parked some place Over the 3 months hae ran down his battery at least 7 times and needed road service to jump him.

Regarding Wiper Blades for the Land Rover LR3...
I've had great success with the "Bosch Icon" Wiper Blades for the front!
For the single rear wiper blade, Bosch makes the "Rear View" wiper blade!
The front blades have a swept look to them. They also look superior, (my opinion), to the stock blades that originally came with the vehicle. They are also infinately more quiet and do a very nice job.
The rear wiper blade has the familiar black metal arm and does a very good job.
Unfortunately, (for styling) the rear wiper does not resemble the front wipers at all. It would be great if Bosch could produce a rear wiper to resemble the front wipers. Until then, this has been a livable alternative to the factory original wiper blade(s) dilema. These wipers should easily retrofit for years 2005 through 2008. They are sold through Advance Auto Parts Stores. Incidentally, I had to inform the Parts Manager of the local Land Rover Dealership about them!

I totally agree!!!! I put the Bosch blades on my '06 LR3 recently and man they are great. A hell of alot better than paying $98 to have the dealer do it. Saved about $60 bucks!!!! They definitely look better than the OEM blades.

I agree as well. Actually, the ICON blades I bought at AutoZone are the best wiper blades I have every owned. Superior to Land Rovers. Although, AutoZone's website does not make them an option for the LR3. Install them any way. They are perfect!

I have a 2006 LR3 SE and use the Bosch 422A ICON Wiper Blade - 22". I paid $20 on Amazon. The wiper blades are awesome, much better than the originals. I also use Rain-X glass treatment for optimum results. Very smooth.

I have a 1961 Series II Military Landrover. It has 2 individual wiper motors attached each side of the 2 front screens. I need to replace the wiper blades. they are 9 1/2 inches long. (anything longer will hit over the metal window frames.) These blades are a simple rubber blade pressed into a metal band, they are not spring loaded and simply push on & button clip to the wiper arm, (not hook type) Any idea where I may find replacement wipers like this, I seem to have tried most places online without success. Thank you. Terry
(p.s. Someone did say that these blades where the same style on the early & late 1950's Austin & Morris Mini's)
