The windscreen wiper device includes a longitudinally extending wiper strip of a flexible material for sealing against a windshield. The wiper device further includes a carrier element which operably supports the wiper strip and a two piece connecting device that is secured with the carrier element for attachment with a wiper arm. The two piece connecting device includes a base which is fixed with the carrier element and an adapter which is pivotally connectable with the base. The adapter is formed as one integral piece and includes a button for releasable engagement within an opening of a bayonet-style wiper arm, a pair of rear locking tabs for receiving legs of a rock and lock-style wiper arm, a front nose portion for releasable engagement with a front edge of the rock and lock-style wiper arm and a single cantilever beam for releasable engagement with hook-style and transverse pin-style wiper arms.

The windscreen wiper device has a carrier element which operably supports and biases a wiper blade. A two-piece connecting device is provided and includes a base and a joint part. The base is secured with the carrier element and/or the wiper blade. The joint part is pivotally attached with the base and has a main body portion which extends between opposite longitudinal ends and a front nose portion which is connected with one of the longitudinal ends. The joint part further includes a pair of rear locking lugs which extend from the other longitudinal end. The main body portion has a top surface with a resilient tab formed therein, and the resilient tab has a button with a stepped surface that faces longitudinally towards the front nose portion and presents three vertically and longitudinally spaced tiers for lockingly connecting the joint part with differently sized oscillating arms.

The windscreen wiper device includes a wiper element which is made of a flexible material and a carrier which operably supports the wiper element and biases the wiper element into a pre-curved position. A base is engaged with the carrier and at least one connector piece is releasably connectable with the base. The base includes a pair of holding elements which wrap around opposite lateral side edges of the carrier and a pair of laterally spaced side walls. The connector piece includes a pair of legs. A pair of projections are disposed in at least one of the side walls of the base and the legs of the connector piece and a pair of recesses are disposed on at least one of the side walls of the base and the legs of the connector piece for snappingly receiving the projections to releasably attach the connector piece with the base.

The windscreen wiper device includes a longitudinally extending wiper element which is made of an elastic rubber or rubber-like material. A carrier supports the wiper element and is curved in a longitudinal direction to bias the wiper element into a curved shape. A connecting device is engaged with the carrier for connection with a wiper arm. End caps are disposed at opposite longitudinal ends of the carrier and are spaced longitudinally from the connecting device. A pair of subspoilers are disposed on opposite longitudinal sides of the connecting device. Each of the subspoilers includes a bottom, front and back walls which bound an open interior and two reinforcing members which extend through the open interior and divide the open interior into at least two chambers for reinforcing the front and back walls. The front, back and bottom walls and the reinforcing members are all formed as one integral piece.

A vehicle disc brake pad having a backing plate and a friction pad that includes a complex edge profile formed from a plurality of undulations on at least one side edge of the periphery. Each undulation includes a wave crest and a wave trough that extend toward and away from the periphery of the backing plate, respectively. The brake pad may provide improved thermal management and wear resistance, thereby improving the life span of the brake pad, particularly when used with heavier vehicles such as trucks, crossover vehicles, and sports utility vehicles.
