Had the same problem last week - could not find any after market wipers for the rear, so went to the dealers to request a replacement and they said it would be approx six weeks before they could get them in, however they would have the blade inserts in within a couple of days. So I went back a couple of days later and purchased a new blade - cost £2.41 and fitted it myself - about 30 seconds work. Works fine . If your wiper blade carrier is not damaged you can do the same.
Not possible It certainly is. I replaced the insert in my 03 Cooper with a part from the dealer. Sorry, don't have the part code. I just went to the parts dept. and asked for a re-fill for the rear blade carrier. No prob. Maybe your dealer is trying to shim a few extra coins out of you
