Not sure what your question is, but a longer blade can be put on providing it does not hit the rubber molding on either side of the swipe. You can check by standing outside and watching the wiper and see how close you are to the molding as it goes from side to side. Good luck.

Probably, but you will have to look at the area the current size sweeps and measure the clearance from the edges (moldings and such) The easy way is to spray some water on the windshield and turn the wipers on for one sweep. If there is an unwiped area across 100% of the blade travel, you can use a longer blade. The amount of extra can be determined from the smallest unwiped area.

Do your blades sweep horizontally for movement while essentially remaining vertical in orientation? Mine do, and it'll take longer blades as there is lots of room off the ends to the bottom of the windshield (which is the closest point during any sweep).

If you have a 2 piece windshield and your blades orient like a car - horizontal in the stowed position, and vertical at the end of a full sweep, then......YMMV.

A small caveat -
yes, first it must fit,
but, also, consider if the already LONG wiper is fitted with a longer blade, will it put too much drag on your wiper motor to wear it out prematurely?

IMHO, all I want swept is where I have to see... this windshield is larger than the PICTURE window in our home!
so I couldn't sweep the whole thing with a barn door
