Frequently Asked Questions
I can’t find a particular application in the database, or I believe that the database is wrong – what should I do?
Although we pride ourselves on having perhaps the most comprehensive and up-to-date wiper blades catalogue available in the aftermarket, we do accept that sometimes there may be inaccurate or obsolete information within the database.
If you believe that the database contains an error, or you have an update for a new vehicle, then we welcome all feedback. Please click here to contact us.
What is the difference between traditional, jointless & hybrid wiper blades?
Traditional wiper blades are made up of a metal frame with linkages and a rubber wiper insert that cleans the screen. This style of blade used to be fitted as standard on most vehicles but more modern applications tend to have jointless or hybrid wiper blades fitted as OE instead.
Jointless wiper blades (sometimes called aero, flat or beam blades) are a more modern design of blade, these are often fitted as standard to new vehicles. Instead of different parts and linkages, they contain one tensioned steel strip so that the blade hugs the windscreen with even pressure along the whole length of the screen.
Hybrid wiper blades combine the performance of a traditional wiper blade with the aerodynamic properties of a jointless blade, they consist of a metal frame with multiple pressure points as well as a linked plastic spoiler which reduces wind-lift to deliver a streak-free wipe across the screen.
If a vehicle has jointless blades fitted as standard then they can only be replaced with our Exact Fit Aero Blades. If a vehicle has traditional wiper blades fitted, they can be replaced with our traditional blades or instead, upgraded to modern jointless blade technology with our retro-fit beam or hybrid wiper blades.
Your database lists a different size wiper to the one currently fitted to the car – why?
Sometimes we may list a different size blade to the one currently found on a vehicle. This can be for a number of reasons – for example, sometimes the original blade might be an odd length and we list a blade that is slightly longer or slightly shorter that we have checked still fits and functions without any problems – or it could be something as simple as a previous owner fitting the wrong size of blade.
