If its an 'A' class they may be different to the standard Fiat Ducato ones. You can buy universal fitting types at places like Halfords. Just measure the length of the blade and buy the same. Remember to check that left and right hand sides are the same length.

Buying the 'fit all' blades, may mean that you have a lumpy compromise fitting to adapt to your model.
Make a mental note of the blades fitting before ordering.

Bosch blades are the dogs bits. Nothing worse than chattering blades.

I have tried the cheapies and they fell off in heavy rain in Holland
Fortunate to find a Dutch Halfords and bought Bosch wipers, cost 28 e
Cheap is not always best in this case
