Why is size important

If the length of the wiper blade you place on the vehicle exceeds the recommended value, the wipers may collide with each other, damage the wiper motor or damage the wiper blade itself. Oversized blades may also not conform to the shape of the window, leaving an unclean area and reducing visibility. Or the blade may strike the trim at the edge of the windshield.

For cars, too small blades cannot clear the entire windshield, resulting in reduced visibility. Always install Windshield Five Section Wiper Blade of the correct size according to the make, model and year of the vehicle.

Stripes on the windshield

Before using the wiper blade in rain, snow, hail or dust, replace the wiper blade immediately if there are signs of wear to ensure continuous safety.
