trico are horrible blades...might as well be OEM at that point....
follow this link: http://www.rainx.com/Tips_Information/info/installation_latitude.aspx then click on the I&L ARMS tab (center right of page, far right of all the other tabs) The first one had me scratching my head for a second but it wasnt too difficult to figure out. Once you figure it out the second one is done in 4 seconds. I did mine in the rain at walmart parking lot so it didnt take too long because I dont want to get wet haharube2131 said:Has anyone tried replacing their wiper blades? I have the rain-x latitude for the replacement and I am having an issue in putting the new ones on. They do not want to fit in the arm properly. Does anyone know what kind of connectors the wiper arms use?
This is too bad. However I do have to say, after the wipers being terrible for a while now, today it "warmed up" to 30 degrees and there was lots of water spraying up and the wipers actually did a decent job. Pretty much completely smooth and quiet. I know the colder it gets the worse, so maybe they will be better in warmer temps? Which is hard to come by here in upstate NY.davmyrnis said:The skipping and chattering problem is the same problem all Terrain and Equinox owners are having.
I have a 2010 Terrain and the problem started at 3 months and I am retired and do very little driving plus the vehicle is parked underground in a temperatue controlled environment.
The problem is inherent with the wiper blades GM uses or the curve in the windshield is the culprit.
Funny how this problem was the same on my 2003 Saturn Vue and now on the Terrain.
Have been waiting for a solution, but GM does not care, so we have to try different methods until somebody hits the jackpot.
This is really sad for a vehicle this price.
Recently rented a Chrysler 300 on a trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, the wipers were absolutely
impeccable in all conditions, man was I jealous. BTW, I live in Canada and was on vacation, the reason for the rental.
Never visit that shop again if they cannot figure out how to do a simple wiper replacement. When opening the package there is a connector piece already installed, remove it and then install the blades with no clamps what so ever. Clearly states that in the instructions.aluva99 said:I also purchased the rain-x latitude blades and was told by a local shop by my workplace that the clamps were not included in the packaging. He stated that the factory wipers come with European style blades and that out of the (3) different clamps none of them fit my vehicle. Now I will have to revisit the issue after I watch the video and see if I can put them on myself.
