Hi all, I have a Sportage '06 2.0 CRDi XS.

Have tried to replace the front wipers but can't seem to get them to release. They look like the hook type and have pressed the clip, but they don't want to budge. Any tips?

Also checked in Halfords to see what engine oil l should be using and have come up with a 5W30 with DPF Fully Synthetic or a 15W40 Mineral. Will it make much difference?

Sorted out the wipers, was pulling up instead of pushing down. Doh.

Any help with the engine oil?

Go for the synthetic not mineral oil - my garage always uses synthetic in the CRDi and I think this is part of the reason that the oil change intervals are so generous.

Anyone got any idea where to get a replacement rear windscreen wiper, Halford don't seem to stock a like for like replacement.
