Man Replacing Windshield Wiper Blades

Did you know that different types of windshield wipers work better in different climates? It is important to know what type and style of windshield wiper blade is the best fit for your Honda before you make your purchase. It is also important to know what type of mount you need – J-Hook, Side-Lock, Top-Lock, Pinch-Tab, Bayonet and Slim-Top. Find the right fit for your vehicle in the guide below. 

Standard Windshield Wiper Blades – Standard windshield wiper blades use a metal or plastic frame with a central bridge and links that work in tandem to provide four to eight pressure points on your windshield. Integrated spring flexors evenly distribute the force generated to the glass for a clean wipe.

Flat Windshield Wiper Blades – Flat windshield wiper blades are a popular, low-profile option for many new vehicles that feature a full-length spoiler and tensioned metal flexors that apply uniform pressure to the full-length rubber blade. This style of windshield wiper blade is designed to increase uniform pressure and reduce wind noise with an aerodynamic design. 

Hybrid Windshield Wiper Blades – Hybrid windshield wiper blades may be the best of both worlds with a similar aerodynamic profile to a flat wiper blade and the performance of a traditional standard blade. An integrated spoiler runs the length of the blade to reduce wind resistance and create consistent pressure at high speeds.
