    The Trico 47-700 inserts fit beautifully into the original equipment Bosch-made wiper blades on both my Audi and BMW. A wonderful alternative to what the dealer sells at a fraction of the cost. Pretty easy and quick to install, and they do a wonderful job clearing the glass.

    Worst wipers ever! I installed them on my car and soon after drove for 2 hours through a storm. The wipers kept squaking and making a grinding noise. Not only that, which was extremely annoying for 2 hours, they left sticky dissolved rubber residue on my windshield. Getting it off was a pain! I used wiper refils many times before and never had this problem. I ended up throwing them out immediately and replacing the entire wipers with the Rain-X latitude. The Rain-X wipers are amazing! Glide over the glass very smoothly and don't make a sound. You get what you pay for. I will never get the wiper refills again! Please see my pics for additional details.

      Get the 8mm, not this one for 2010 Lexus

        • Too Thin For Oem Blade

        Best Uses

          Comments about TRICO Break-to-Fit Refills, 22" x 7mm (2 Count):

          The ability to use the OEM wiper blade is certainly a bonus; however, this 7mm is too thin for the Lexus IS 350C. The Driver side is 550mm (~21.65 inches) and the passenger side is shorter so, per the Advance Auto Part website, was recommended the 8mm longer one (up to 26") for the driver side and the 7mm, up to 22" for the passenger side. I was skeptical so I ordered both since I was thinking the 7mm x 22" would be enough for both sides. Luckily, I got both because the OEM is closer to the 8mm refill width. I tried to slide the 7mm through; however, it seemed like there was a little too much play in the refill to the blade contact and it was noticeable thinner than the OEM that came with the vehicle. So, I put the 8mm on both and resized both down to their suitable sizes. The 8mm was able to go down that small; however, I'm concerned that the contact with the glass is not great at the tip so I wonder if the decreased in scoring of the metal supports is affecting the ability of it to conform to the windshield. Time will tell... Will update if I find that the 8mm was not a good idea on the passenger side. The driver side seems to fit well; however, it hasn't rained yet so I am uncertain how well they will hold up in the rain.

                      I've always had great experiences with advance auto but these wiper blades that came up as an 'exact fit' for my 2005 BMW 325xi are far from that. The passenger side was fine but the driver side refill was about 1cm too short to clip into place. I was able to bend the metal rails from the old refills back in shape and reuse them but out of the box these refills were no good. Final note, we had our first real rain with them yesterday and they both squeaked like crazy. Some people had good luck with them, I unfortunately wasn't one of them.

                      This item is exactly as it is described. For no reason, my wiper arm is not 22' as BMW factory defined but 23' long. Although one inch short, this refill still fits the arm. I'll see how long it lasts.

                            These refills, when trimmed to the appropriate length, are compatible with the original 20 inch passenger side wiper blade of an e46 series BMW. They are approximately a half inch too short to be used on the 22 inch driver side blade. The driver side replacements are available from Bosch as 25 inch refills that need to be cut down to 22 inches. It would be great if Trico would provide a slightly longer version of this product (i.e., 23 inches) to cover both blades on the BMW application.

                                Not much to say about these replacement wiper blades. They fit properly, were easy to install, and work great so far. 4 stars because I'm rating them after only two weeks so I have no idea how long they will last. I might change to 5 stars if they work without failure for a year or two. Not sure you can expect any wiper blades to last longer than two years when exposed to the intense sun down South, but we shall see ...

                                      This is not a wiper blade assembly. This is only the rubber blade part that you have to cut to fit. It depends on how long your driver side wiper is.
