Expert showcases wiper blade fitting videos on YouTube
Wiper blade manufacturer Trico has produced hundreds of fitting videos on its YouTube channel. The videos, created over the last nine years, help technicians and motorists to fit wipers blades with ease. While wiper blades are perceived as a relatively easy product to fit, many drivers still struggle, which creates an obvious revenue stream for workshops to capitalise on. However, even some technicians find wiper blades tricky, which is why Trico created a wealth of fitting videos to refer to the brand’s YouTube channel.
Trico recommends that wipers are changed as soon as they show signs of wear, such as streaking, smearing or chattering across the windscreen, and at least once a year.
Trico’s senior brand & product manager, Sam Robinson, said: “Wiper blades can be a daunting component to work with if you don’t know what you’re doing, which is why so many people pay for them to be fitted and, because it’s a relatively cheap product to buy, people are generally not too concerned about the additional cost for fitting, which is certainly an advantage for workshops. However, all of our ranges have been designed to be easy and simple to fit, and our YouTube channel walks them through every single one of our products, so anyone can watch and follow along and fit them with confidence.”
