Autotuning is a science in itself. In almost all areas you can improve your car and beautify it and adapt it to your personal needs. In addition to the very obvious improvements, such as increasing engine performance, painting and tuning of large components, such as rims, spoilers and others, the actual art of tuning is in the detail. A perfectly modified car is reflected in detail. Therefore, you should also consider changing your windshield wiper system into consideration. Windscreen wiper systems can be changed in many different ways. The wiper arm and the wiper blade holder can be replaced, for example, by a painted in body color component. Also so-called Stickerbombing is often seen on wiper arms. In addition to the color design but you can also make technical changes, such as the speed or adjust the rest positions and the conversion of a system with two wipers on a so-called Einarmwischer (sports wiper).
Advantages of a Einarmscheibenwischers
An advantage of car tuning with a Einarmwischer lies in the cool look. The Einarmwischer can be purchased from various suppliers even directly with the factory-painted car or just later designed in color. Thus, either contrasts or similarities can be achieved and thus clever accents can be set. Here you can let your creativity run wild. Another advantage in the field of optics is the geometry. A single-arm wiper makes it possible to create a symmetrical picture of the car. There normalerweis to The car has a central axis of symmetry, which is interrupted by the left or right-hand position of the windscreen wiper (if visible). The centering of a Einarmwischers the symmetry but can be restored when the rest point center established. The Einarmwischer also has less mechanical components, in contrast to the two-arm wiper. Thus, the operating costs are even reduced, since only one wiper blade must be replaced when worn and not two. Furthermore, the space required when installing a Einarmwischers almost always less than the two-arm wiper, which has to accommodate more mechanics.
Disadvantages of car tuning with Einarmscheibenwischer
Is the vehicle not standard (Mercedes 190E, Renault Twingo, Jaguar XJ 6 etc.) equipped with the retrofit solution but also quite more Devour space than the factory variant. A disadvantage of the two-arm wiper is the lower wiping performance or the smaller wiping surface. This can have a disadvantageous effect in larger vehicles with a correspondingly large windshield. No problem with a Twingo, but an old Jaguar XJ is "under wipes“As we find.
What to look for when Einarmscheibenwischer?
One-arm wipers are still sometimes produced by well-known manufacturers such as Bonrath, JOM or FK. Some manufacturers have already stopped production due to a lack of demand. There are a few things to consider when installing. As soon as the factory wiper is replaced by another one must make sure that it is absolutely compatible with the vehicle model. It shouldn't be too big and of course not too small. In addition to compatibility, it is also important to ensure that, in addition to the wiper arm itself, the drive and the mechanics attached to it also have to be adapted. Often more force has to be used with this system to move the one “big” wiper. In addition to the technical feasibility, it should also be checked whether the new single-arm wiper is even legally permitted, i.e. one General operating permit (ABE) has. Should this not be the case, high penalties may be the result until the loss of insurance coverage. In case of doubt, ask a TUEV office. It should also be noted that a permanent centering of the windshield wiper on public roads is not allowed because the visibility is limited.
better ask a testing organization beforehand
We hope you the info report to the term Single Arm from the field of autotuning. Our goal is that the largest German-language tuning dictionary (Tuning Wikipedia) and to explain tuning terms from A to Z easily and understandably. Almost every day we expand this encyclopedia and how far we are already can you HERE see. Soon the next one will be Tuning scene concept be illuminated by us. Incidentally, you will be informed about new topics if you have ours Feed subscribe to.
