Windshield Wiper Blades for
MINI Cooper R50 Hatchback/Hardtop (2002-2006)

Maintenance for your MINI Cooper is important for the safety of you and other drivers. Through time your wiper blades become dry, cracked, and damaged from different weather conditions. Windshield wiper inspection and replacement, especially prior to your region's wet-weather season, should be a routine.

Worn-out blades can impair your visibility, increasing the chance of a possible accident. Check your windshield wipers every 6 months. If they're creating squeaky noises, leaving streaks, sticking, or other abnormal issues it's time to replace your windshield wiper blades.

Here at MiniMania, we provide windshield wiper blades for every MINI model. We offer OEM and Aftermarket front, rear, and 3-piece wiper blade sets for your Gen1 MINI Cooper R50 Hardtop/Hatchback.

Wiper Blade Size for R50 MINIs

The size of your R50 Hardtop wiper blades depends on the year. The 2005-2006 model, for example, requires a smaller rear wiper than the previous year(s).

2002-2004 18" 19" 11.75"
2005-2006 18" 19" 11.25"
