General information

To keep the driver’s line of sight clear and maintain visibility, a vehicle’s wiper blades must be durable, well-fitted, and reliable. High-quality windscreen wipers are a safety part – for drivers, passengers, and other road users – whose importance is par with brakes. Like many essential car parts, windscreen wiper blades work at their best when they are not noticed – functioning quietly and flawlessly to keep the driver’s attention on the road and not distracted by a dirty front or rear window.

A conventional wiper blade system comprises four parts: the wiper motor, link, arm, and blade. Driven by the vehicle's electrics and controlled by the driver, the wiper motor transfers power to the link, which provides the connection between the wiper motor and the arm. This arm uses spring pressure to press the wiper blade flat onto the windscreen. As the wiper blade moves up and down, the windscreen is wiped and cleaned of any dirt, rain, or snow.
