Wiper blades are one of the most neglected safety features on a vehicle. However, when you need your wipers and they don't work properly, you instantly wish they worked right. We've created a video to show you how to replace your blades and we'll share that link at the bottom of this article.
One quick tip - we recommend replacing your wiper blades every six months. Airborne contaminants like oil, sunlight, and dirt all weaken the rubber blade. Weather plays a role too. Cold weather makes rubber blades rigid and brittle. Hot weather warps the rubber. It is easy to see when a wiper blade is torn at the end. But there are times a wiper looks okay when it's not. Here are some symptoms that can help you identify a worn or damaged wiper blade: Wiper blades that squeak or make noise are worn. Wipers that smear or streak your windshield are worn or damaged. Wipers that miss segments of your windscreen are damaged. Finally, remember your rear window wiper blade. While visibility out the front windscreen is definitely a priority, that rear window is important when you're backing up or changing lanes.
Driving down the road to have wet road debris on your windscreen or back window can cause a serious safety concern for any driver. Let's mitigate as many dangers as we can. There are plenty of road hazards out there that we have no control over. Your wiper blades won't be one of them!
