Default couple questions

I'm new here. Recently bought a 2008 Astra. Like the car, drives well. Couple questions though:

1) where can I get a 9" rear wiper blade? Seems all the app guides recommend a 12" blade which fits the 4-door model but too big for the 2-door.

2) is there a way to get the digital clock off military time and show standard time after noon?

Would appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.

No idea for the wiper blade. I purchased a new wiper arm from Europe via eBay.

The military time is not changeable. That is how Europeans set their clocks and GM did not adjust that for the North American market.

I've bought that rear wiper from a Chevy dealer. Not sure if they would still have them but its probably worth a shot.

Just curious, how long ago did that Chevy dealer have the wiper?

Thanks, but I'm pretty sure even the 10" would be too long.

Actually, just bought one internationally on-line from AliExpress. Wish me luck. If I'm scammed only cost $4.76.
