Measure length of your existing wipers to determine size. May have to order new ones as they are bigger than most wipers and stores typically don't stock unusual sizes because they are slow sellers. As to brand, IMO, most any known brand is good.

Take one off and carry it with you...length is one thing but the center mounting point can differ. Many have multiple connectors included for different applications. Try a big box auto place like NAPA.

Same here. Just make sure you get the "J Hook" mount type to match your Axis/Vegas.

Check length of both wipers. Sometimes one is longer.

RevJeffery, OMG, my 2017 Axis has a different dash design! Very odd.

I dont have a real good picture but my defroster vents are on a slope towards the window. So it looks like to me my dash is 3 inches or so higher then the front part slopes to the bottom of the window. Your dash looks straight to the window to me.

The really interesting thing here is that my 2014 Axis dash looks a lot like yours and not like RevJeffery's. Thor must have tried something for a while and then went back to the slanted vent design.

Yeah but the funny thing is - Rev J and mine are both 2017's. I thought his was a 14 or 15.

Custom built -- who needs design plans. If it fits, put screws in it.

Or if you run out of current style grab one from the bone yard and make it fit.

Well I picked up my rig just now and all I can say is....The last photo with my wiper blade on dash, must have been a "Thor Optical Delusion" My dash is also Slanted not Flat. Everyone can take your tinfoil hats off. I will be able to sleep tonight!! Click image for larger version
