Wiper Blades

Wiper Blades & Assemblies

AAD stock Tridon & Bosch Wiper Blades

TRIDON

Tridon Wiper Blades are manufactured to the highest quality to ensure a crisp clean wipe. The low profile low lift design uses a galvanised zinc steel frame and stainless steel rivets for maximum corrosion protection, along with plastic bushes for a smooth operation, less noise and longer service life.

The range is available in 15 lengths, from 280mm (11″) to 710mm (28″), each blade comes complete with adaptors to suit various arm style designs.

The Tridon wiper blade range uses O.E. metal rail style refills. The refill can be interchanged with Tridon narrow back refills in either metal rail or plastic once the original refill has reached the end of its service life. The replacement Tridon wiper blade must be compatible with the vehicle’s original wiper blade; the Tridon wiper range has been carefully researched and engineered to suit each specific application.

Also available are:

  • Plastic Back Wiper Refills
  • Metal Rail Wiper Refills
  • Tridon Flexblade

Threadlockers are superior to conventional lock washers, nylon inserts, and other mechanical devices because they secure the entire fastener assembly against loosening from shock and vibration by filling the space between threaded metal parts, curing to form a tough, adhesive bond and seal. They also seal the threads against leakage, preventing rust and corrosion. Threadlockers remain the most reliable way to lock and seal threaded fasteners of all shapes and sizes, before or after assembly.

belt tensioners

Belt Tensioners

Gates DriveAlign automatic belt tensioners are application-specific and OEM equivalent or better in both performance and fit. Gates cover the biggest range of aftermarket automatic tensioners for the Australian market. This means more sales opportunities, reduced warranties and fewer costly comebacks.

Gates builds only round torsional spring automatic belt tensioners. These provide constant belt tension through rotation rather than creating tension through coiling. Round torsional spring tensioners are the OEM choice because they are stronger than the flat spring types. For this reason, Gates tensioners are made to OE specifications, with the OEM form, fit and long-lasting performance.

Unlike so-called “universal” tensioners, Gates tensioners require no retrofitting to make them work, they bolt on just like the one you took off. Choosing the right tensioner is easier when you’re choosing Gates.

Tensioners, like any other part, don’t last forever. To reduce belt warranty problems, comebacks and labour claims, Gates recommend that the belt and the tensioner are replaced at the same time. It is highly probable that the source of belt system damage (excessive belt wear, tension loss, vibration, misalignment, etc.) is the result of a worn tensioner.

A vast majority of vehicles with serpentine belts often use automatic belt tensioners. Tensioners are built into the drive system for several reasons. They are designed to maintain correct tension for the life of the belt. As well as reduce maintenance by eliminating the need to manually retention belts on a periodic basis. and provide consistent and correct belt tension. A belt that slips maybe noisy can have reduced service life and can cause accessories to function improperly.
