New Style Replacement Wipers

Post by jeff618 » Tue Dec 08, 2009 6:11 pm

Has anyone put those newer, flat, frameless "beam blade" windshield wipers on their Merk? Do they fit? How do they perform? How do they look?

I upgraded my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited to trico tech beam blades and they work great, but this vehicle is newer.

Any feedback on Merkur's?

Welcome aboard!!
I've been VERY happy with the Michelin wipers.
They look a bit clunky compared to the Bosch factory metal wipers, but they sure work well!

I got the car with Rain-X wipers so I haven't had a chance to replace them. I've used Bosch Icons on the Focus since I bought it in 05 and LOVE THEM. They last much longer than regular blades and do a real nice job all year.
