Great Product

Very easy to adjust length of wiper refill. Much better alternative than changing entire wiper arm.

The item was purchased on line to assure it was on hand when I traveled 30 miles to the Hanover, PA store, and to take advantage of the 20% online discount. I have used this product too short a time to rate its quality, but have had good experience with Advance Auto and Trico products in the past. My problem now has nothing to do with quality or with Advance Auto per se. This item (Trico 47-800 wiper refill, which is 8mm wide) is very clearly shown on the Advance web site as THE one for a 2003 Cadillac DHS. After noting in some online reviews that users had problems with installation, I carefully measured the rubber wiper inserts on my vehicle and concluded I actually needed model 47-600 (6mm wide). Figuring that those who sell the product should know best, I ordered Trico 47-800 plus a spare, but also took the wiper itself, which is the original that came on the car when new, into the store. A very capable and courteous Advance assistant (the only female there) agreed the refills ordered do not fit and sold me the only 47-600 she had in stock. That model fits perfectly and she immediately refunded money to my account for the incorrect refills. Since I purchased from the store, I lost the 20% online discount and still need a spare 47-600. Since few now carry wiper refills (a sincere thanks Advance), I expect to purchase a spare when I find an Advance store with one in stock. Incidently, I later checked Trico application charts on other web sites and found the same problem there. I would recommend Trico and Advance to friends, with the caveat that the product must be the correct one--

        These are easy to use and have less environmental waste impact than a full blade replacement. I normally keep several of these in my garage as spares so I have them when I need them.

                    Why buy the whole blade when you can just replace the inserts. They make it easy to do but I suggest you have a good pair of wire cutters to trim the rubber and hold the metal parts at the indentations to snap off at the proper length. It takes a little more time than just replacing the whole blade but works just as well in the end for less than half the price.

                      The ability to use the OEM wiper blade is certainly a bonus; however, I was recommended the 7mm blade for the passenger side. Turns out, the 7mm is too thin for the 2010 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 be trimmed to fit the passenger side size; 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...

                      I 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.

                        Works as advertised. Looks somewhat different than a traditional wiper blade (more rectangular end), so keep that in mind.

                          Comments about TRICO Break-to-Fit Refills, 26" x 8mm (2 Count):

                          I bought these refills because they were an exact fit for my 1998 and 2001 Buick Century.

                          However, no amount of excessive force could make them fit the wiper arm assemblies on my car.

                          They are 8 mm wide, which is about 1 mm wider than the slot they need to go into.

                          Since it is raining today and the old ones are breaking apart, I did my best to MAKE them work; however, it is impossible.

                          They are NOT an "Exact Fit;" they are not even an abusive force fit.

                          Wasted time and effort. Another trip to the parts store.

                          DO NOT BUY these, unless you take the wiper arm to the store to verify fit.
