Federal-Mogul Corp. has expanded its line of profile-type wiper blades to include coverage for the 19-millimeter bayonet and side-pin connections featured on several late-model European passenger applications.
The Anco brand’s Contour Narrow (N) series blades are available in nine lengths ranging from 14 to 26 inches. The blades are available for late-model Volkswagen Beetle, Jetta and Passat and several Audi models equipped with 19-mm bayonet connections, as well as BMW applications with 19-mm side-pin connections.
The company says the Contour wipers are engineered to provide premium, all-season performance and represent the latest technology in profile-type blades. The one-piece design features the company’s Articulated Contact technology to help prevent corrosion and freezing, while the original equipment-style directional spoiler prevents wind lift and provides blade-to-windshield contact for optimal visibility.
Each blade’s graphite and DuraKlear Pluselements provide a streak-free wipe, offering the driver a clear view of the road ahead, according to Federal-Mogul. Contour wipers also feature the Anco brand’s exclusive KwikConnect Installation System to provide quick and easy wiper blade replacement.
“As we enter the fall driving season, it will be important for millions of drivers to replace their worn wiper blades with leading technologies that can help provide a clear view of the road in all driving conditions,” says Mike McKee, global product director, ANCO Wipers.
