So, for whatever reason, I’ve been thinking a lot about wipers. Just today, I thought: What would happen if I put larger blades on my car to increase the wipers’ surface area? So I stole the drivers side blade from our 2006 Odyssey (26") and I put it on my 2002 Accord drivers side (which is supposed to have a 24" blade). This did 2 things: It eliminated the little “triangle” where the wipers rest, and second, it clearly increased the surface area to be wiped, thus giving me better visibility. So what are your thoughts on this? Why do you suppose the designers recommend the smaller blade, when one only 2 inches larger seems to work better? Do you think using the larger blade will put extra strain on the wiper motor?
