Denso offers wipers solution

When it comes to reasons for an NCT test failure, the condition and performance of the wiper blades remains high up on the list, which proves that despite their essential role in driver safety, they’re often overlooked by vehicle owners.

Supplying and fitting wiper blades is therefore an important provision that should be offered by every workshop, not only when carrying out a pre-NCT check, but as part of their general service and repair package.

However, due to their vital safety function, the quality of replacement blades must also be a primary consideration, which is why Denso claims to provide the perfect solution.

Denso is an original equipment (OE) manufacturer of wiper blades supplying many of the world’s vehicle manufacturers, including Ferrari, which has been a Denso customer for more than 15 years.

The Denso brand therefore not only provides workshops with both the quality and variety of styles on which they can depend, but the company’s aftermarket division also provides the advice and technical support often overlooked by other wiper suppliers.

The following frequently asked questions provide technicians with a guide to what their customers want to know about wipers and this Denso wiper blade overview is there to supply the answers.

  • Are conventional, hybrid and flat wiper blades better suited to different types of vehicle, or is it just a matter of preference?
