This is my time to test a new batch of blades
[Just got done testing Michelins, RainXbrand, and Tripledge last 3 years]



so I went with Trico NeoForm on my Yaris, Trico exact fit (not so exact) rear.
and AquaPel as a surface coating (RainX only on side and back windows)

PIAA silicones on my 4runner and OEM rear insert, with RainX

and Silblade silicone for my GF, and sister gets PIAA's, with RainX

these silicone blades are not cheap

and I do not want to test AquaPel with Silicone blades. I need to test
with old-school Trico blades to know what Aquapel really does or does not do
this winter

wiggle room side-to-side, allowing the far-end of the insert to float off the glass
when pressure is applied to the middle of the insert

I slid the Trico insert out of the Trico arm, installed the Toyota arm, and slid in the
Trico insert. The Toyota stop tabs touch the insert at both ends of the blade, and when
the arm is at rest position, the stops hold the insert and keep it from floating off the glass.

So, in the case of: should I get a new insert, or a whole new Trico exact fit assembly ?
say NO to Trico, or just get the insert.

Other companies may make a better OEM-fit blade housing, but Trico dropped the ball on this one.

I now have 100% rear wiper contact. crisis averted.
This is good info. Thanks.

"...housing, but Trico dropped the ball on this one."

wouldn't be the first time. same issue on my old car, the curvature of the rear glass was not matched by Trico (and other aftermarket brands). the only remedy was to use the factory backing (the metal insert) which was bent correctly to conform. same story on Yaris...the blades look almost the same but definitely are not the same.

Any Toyota part number that has "YZZ" in it may be a "Toyota Genuine Part", but it's not a factory part. it's common for wipers, oil filters, cabin filters, and some other fast-moving parts. We (the dealership) sell these because they're less expensive for us, and for our customers, and they're still high-quality parts that are approved by Toyota. I'll post a list soon of wiper blade part numbers for Yari.

I must have lucked out with my trico rear blade...its not perfect, but its about the same as the factory. Irregardless I still love the neoforms on the front - the crappy weather in Wisconsin the last 3 days has proved that over and over to me. Happy Thanksgiving ya'll.

You tried all those brands you listed over the last three years (is that how I should read that statement?)

If so, I take it none of them lived up to your expectations? Hence your high regard for trico?

A little advice: don't buy wiper blades from NAPA!!! They are the worst investment in my car I ever made. Threw them in garbage next day due to the loss of receipt and went back to Toyota's OEM ones.

I've been trying to buy a new set of neoform beam blades for the front since my last post and the 14" passenger side has been out of stock nationally all fall and winter. I just got an email from wipers123 and they're back in stock. Just thought I'd share because its one of the only 14" beam blades available for the yaris.
