Since a car windshield is designed to fit a specific vehicle perfectly, the size of the windshield is also different. However, most manufacturers follow the industry standard of the measurements of a standard windshield, which is 59 inches x 31.5 inches (. Anytime you want to replace a windshield, you'll need the specific make and model of your car. Without this, you can end up with an incorrect windshield for your vehicle.
In short, they won't be compatible. You should keep in mind that each windshield comes with a specific safety requirement, which also makes it unique. The good news is that First Class Auto glass knows everything there is to know about windshields on the market and has the experience to replace them. Let's get our first question out of the way.
No, wipers are not universal. Also called wiper blades, they come in a variety of styles, sizes, and variations. This makes sense if you think about it. A huge truck and a small subcompact car will have very different sized windshields, so there must be a choice of different blades to fit all drivers and vehicles.
Because they are not universal and it can be difficult to know which ones to buy when replacing wipers. Most wipers measure between 10 and 28 inches. Automakers, seeking to help their dealers make more profits, restrict the manufacture of OEM windshields and sell them in their parts department to consumers and auto glass repair and replacement shops. When a car design is finalized and ready to go into production, automakers solicit bids from automotive glass manufacturers.
As mentioned above, OEE windshields are manufactured by the OEM, as well as other reputable automotive glass manufacturers who may or may not have bid on a particular model. Automotive glass is subject to government regulations and standards, which makes the difference between OEM and OEE windshields minimal.
