Different Types of Wiper Blades
After you’ve found the right wiper blades size for your Fusion, it is time to choose the wiper blade type. In case you didn’t know, there are several different types available on the market right now, each with different abilities (though every single one should at least be able to clean your windshield from rain, bugs, and dirt).
- Frame-Style – a staple in the automotive industry from the day wiper blades were invented. These wiper blades work great at lower speeds for things like water, bugs, and dirt, but they are not the best choice for high-speed driving and snow;
- Beam-Style – made from one piece of rubber or silicone, they are the modern alternative of frame-style blades. These work better at higher speeds and are more durable. They are also more expensive;
- Winter wiper blades – equipped with additional rubber shell for more successful removal of snow;
- Heated wiper blades – new to the market, these wiper blades use heat to combat snow and ice. They are very useful extremely cold temperatures but are not very easy to install and are very expensive.
- Some manufacturers have their own proprietary technologies that give some additional properties, but those technologies raise the price.
How to Replace the Wipers on Ford Fusion?
Replacing your wipers is a very easy process, but if you’ve never done it before, it is best that you follow this step-by-step guide:
- Turn your vehicle to “ON”, but with the engine still off. Turn on the wipers. When they’re vertically set, immediately turn off your vehicle;
- Pull the wipers up until they are stationary;
- Pull the lower end of the wiper up. There should be a small tab to pull with one of your fingers. This will release the wiper;
- Pull down the wiper in order to remove it from the “U” shaped handle;
- Slide the new wiper blade into the handle. It should easily click in place.
