Being able to see clearly in all driving conditions is crucial. Therefore, when a replacement wiper motor is required you should choose one that is of premium quality to ensure longevity and reliability.
First Line Ltd and its Borg & Beck brand offer a range of high quality wiper motors, all of which are a direct replacement for the original equipment (OE) component. To further assist technicians, First Line also supplies all the necessary nuts and bolts, as standard, for easy installation.
Availability is key in the aftermarket and the company has found that, due to vehicle defects, some motors are more prone to failure than others. For instance, the Renault Clio wiper motor (FWM1004/BWM1004) fails as a result of being submerged in water due to a blocked drain channel, it is therefore recommended that factors keep a stock of this reference, especially as autumn is upon us.
Recently, First Line Ltd have expanded their wiper motor range to include two new rear wiper motors, FWM1008/BMW1008 for the Audi A3, A4 and Q5 2003-2013 and FWM1009/BWM1009 for Volkswagen Golf, Passat and Tiguan 2005-2018.
To complement the range, the company under its Borg & Beck brand also offers a comprehensive wiper blade programme including; conventional, flat, spoiler, hybrid, rear, and flat rear blades covering all sizes to fit all popular vehicle applications.
With the season now changing and the weather going from heatwaves to rain, it’s more important than ever to review and potentially replace the wiper blades. As wiper blades are the driver’s main defence against rain and allow them to see clearly, it’s vital that they get them checked in preparation for winter.
Being constantly exposed to changing weather conditions and temperature changes, the rubber blades will inevitably deteriorate over time, which could affect visibility and become dangerous. It is therefore best practice to change the wiper blades annually as a matter of course and not left to deteriorate to the point where smearing affects visibility.
