Chevy Malibu 2009-2012, Exact Fit™ Beam Black Wiper Blade by Trico®. 1 Piece. Installation Type: Pinch Tab, Push Button (22mm). Material: Steel. OE Design. Instead of an articulated superstructure, with fussy metal-to-metal joints and the potential for mechanical lockup from corrosion, these high-quality blades are constructed around a single beam of Memory Curve Steel that is both supple enough to follow the curve of the glass and resist the pressure of the wiper arm. No additional adapters needed. Don't squint and slow down just because it's raining. Replace those funky old wiper blades with a new Trico® Exact Fit™ Beam blade.
- Engineered for maximum contact with today's highly curved windshields
- Memory Curve Steel® beam provides uniform pressure for the clearest wipe
- Superior all-weather performance
- Shell prevents mud or dirt from jamming blade as well
- Easy to install
- Pre-assembled for quick and easy wiper replacement every time
- Restore vision during marginal weather
- OEM fit and function
The polymer shell surrounding the linkage prevents ice and snow from freezing up this premium blade. A frozen blade can no longer curve to follow the windshield, leaving you with annoying, dangerous gaps in the swept area. Bonus: the shell also keeps mud, road grit and salt from mechanically jamming the linkage, so it's not all about snowy days.
Trico® Exact Fit™ replacement blades make it easy to restore your vehicle to original factory quality. Made from the finest quality natural rubber and high-strength steel, they offer long-lasting performance. The American Optometric Association reports that 90 percent of your driving decisions are based on visibility. Trico® wants drivers to know just how critical it is to change wiper blades regularly.
Wiper blades have a tough day, even when it's not raining. They sit on a hot windshield, out in the sun with its degrading UV radiation. They have to wipe off not only water, but also road grit, corrosive washer fluid and salt water from road salt. While the natural rubber from which blades are made provides the most flexible and resilient edge for wiping across glass, it eventually dries out and deteriorates. The rubber can become warped by heat or made brittle by cold. Modern windshields are curved, forcing the blade arm to articulate every swipe. A worn-out blade not only loses its sharp, rain-squeegeeing edge, it gets hard and won't sweep the glass properly. Conventional blades have multiple joints between the superstructure and the wiping element that can corrode and freeze, further restricting mobility, and leaving you with streaks.
The most sure-fire cure is a blade replacement, and it's the simplest one, too. TRICO® blades are easy to install and fit your arms in exactly the same fashion as the OEM blades.
A collision on a rainy night in 1917 between a National Roadster and a bicycle (which fortunately didn’t injure either the cyclist or the Roadster) spawned an industry. Soon, the Tri-Continental Corporation introduced the first commercial windshield wiper. TRICO®, now a subsidiary of cooling system giant Stant, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of windshield wiper blades, wiper systems and refills, with a large portion of both the aftermarket and OEM business.
