OEM wiper inserts are the wrong size

I replaced my wiper inserts with OEM genuine Toyota parts, yet the replacement wiper insert on the pasanger side is slightly too long. It's aproximately 1/8" too long and it touches the frame surounding the window. I'm going to try cutting it, unless you guys have any suggestions.

Maybe you have it the other way around. Anyways, driver's side is 22" and passenger side is 20".

why bother with the instert. just get the Goodyear wippers from Costco for $7, way better than OEM.

Yeah, inserts are a pain. But if I recall, you can put the inserts in one way and they extend a bit farther on the clip end (assuming they're that type). Try installing from the opposite end.

This was it! I'm a little embaressed, but I had thought the long one went on the passenger side. Thanks.
