DENSO wiper blades guiding customers through winter weather
18 January 2018 | Article
Experts in blade maintenance and technology, DENSO offers wiper servicing tips to help workshops benefit from a winter windfall in sales.
With shorter days and freezing temperatures, it is crucial that drivers use high performing wiper blades on their vehicles in order to ensure a safe field of vision on UK roads. Unfortunately, not all drivers will know the warning signs of poor or damaged wipers so it is key that workshops are able to spot the signs of problematic wipers during vehicle servicing, and offer high quality wiper blades as replacements. If workshops can effectively advise drivers, they can help contribute to the general safety of UK roads whilst offering customers an excellent service. As one of the leading OEM and aftermarket manufacturers of Wiper Blades, DENSO offers an insight into how workshops can best serve drivers in a notoriously hazardous season for road-users.
Replacement and renewal
Key signs that wiper blades are not performing on the road are easy to spot. A Streaky clean indicates that there is dirt on the wiper, or that is has been worn down, indicating a replacement is needed. A Stuttering wiper is another sign of blade degradation. Wipers that leave Dirt on the windshield aren’t safe, as they point to the wiper rubber having been degraded. Finally a Poor-Surface Hold whereby a wiper unevenly touches the windscreen suggests that the wiper may be completely bent out of shape and will need replacing.
Now you know there is a problem with the blade, the next step is finding and fitting a new replacement. DENSO make this part easier than ever for workshops. With a 92.5% European car parc coverage, DENSO blades cater for all the key car brands. The OE supplier has also updated its wiper blade catalogue to contain updated part numbers as well as easy to follow fitment diagrams.
