The '14s have the same wipers as the '13s coming out of the factory. The problem is that you can't buy the exact same wiper blades from the dealers or anywhere else.

Nope, too long. Here are 2 pics of those blades installed. It's too long for the passenger's side and slightly longer than ideal on the driver's side:

 

Passenger's side, 28" blade - too long

Driver's side 28" blade - it's usable, but longer than the factory wiper

Listen guys, Ford messed this up somehow.   If you want the same exact blades that came from the factory,

then you have to get these somewhere.  The dealers aren't going by these numbers it seems and

why fordparts.com is wrong.  There are other brands that will work and if the dealer gives you blade

it might be fine, but same as the factory is below.  Amazon says these parts won't fit.  So something

changed somewhere and is causing all the confusion.

 

Your dealer might have some of these lying around.  Make sure they are in a white paper sleeve

inside a plastic bag, not plastic packaging like you'd see at the auto parts store.  But should have

those part numbers exactly. 2800 or 28" is too long.

 

I bought 4 sets from RockAuto.com and have them for a long time.  Fairly cheap at < $10 a blade.

I just ordered two of each as well. Thanks for the coupon code hybridbear.

I rarely had to change my blades on my old car so these should last 5 years or more haha.

I think these blades (the ones that match the factory ones exactly) are better than others.

Just my opinion, but the connection part on these ones is better.  These blades each only fit on

one side, you cannot install them on the wrong side (asymmetric).  They have a directional lip,

air spoiler to them and slightly different construction.

 

I am curious what you guys think of them once you get them.

 

I did get a pair from my dealer with the $20 coupon.  What they gave me were 2 x 26" version (in plastic package)

of the blade.  They fit either side (symmetric) OK, by design, and they worked, I didn't like the

way they connected on at the end of the arm, but they worked fine.  I put them aside.  They also don't have

a directional wind spoiler as part of it (for lack of a better term) and were more of one-piece construction.

The part number for these may have be WW-2600 (not 2601 or 2800) - pretty sure.

 

They were like this: http://i.ebayimg.com...s/ODk5WDE2MDA=/$(KGrHqZHJFcFDS+5-m!UBQ7Z7hrgBg~~60_35.JPG

Placed my order also for two of each side, thanks hybridbear for the coupon code. Can't remember which side had what left but RockAuto now only has 2 remaining for one blade and 5 for the other blade. Hopefully they will get restocked as this thread is seen by more members.

The 26" Rain-X blades I bought don't quite make full contact through the entire windshield wipe on the driver side.  There is an area on the driver side where there middle of the blade loses contact with the windshield.  Seems the blade needs a little more pressure applied to it.

Received my order of wiper blades in 3 days from RockAuto! My shipment did have an issue though, the flimsy box that they used caved in and the top of the box was already opened when USPS delivered it today. Just my luck, one of the four blades that I ordered is missing. I took a picture of the box along with the three blades I received and emailed it to RockAuto. Hopefully they will make good on the missing blade. I really don't want to deal with the USPS.

Just received an email from RockAuto on a Saturday to let me know that they will send a replacement wiper on Monday. Great customer service!

Sounds like RockAuto needs some lessons in how to package a product for safe delivery in the hands of people that don't think twice about throwing a package across a room into a bin.  I've seen it myself at the postoffice.

I've seen this too! Our box arrived Saturday while we were out of town so it was left at the office at our apt. I will get the box today and hopefully there won't be any issues...

For those of you who got the blades I suggested from Rock Auto, please confirm if these do indeed match

the original factory blades.  I needed somebody else to confirm.

Short of actually installing them, I placed them side by side against the blades on the car and they sure appear to be exactly the same. 

I checked both blades, looks good to me.
