There is nothing worse than getting to your car in the morning when you are late for work, only to find your windshield frozen over. Often times, people will run their blades over the frozen windshield in order to clear it. This severely reduces the life span of your wiper blades. Wiper blades frequently get neglected on most cars and yet, they are constantly used and exposed to harsh conditions. We recommend that you change your blades at least once a year, preferably every 6 months.
If your wipers are rattling, streaking or simply not cleaning your window, it is time to replace them. This also goes for wipers that are cracked, torn, nicked or damaged. Winter especially can have an effect on your blades with cold/freezing temperatures, causing them to crack and split. If you are unsure whether or not it is time for a change, perform a simple check with your washer fluid.
Changing your wiper blade yourself, believe it or not, is one of the easiest maintenance jobs that can be performed on your vehicle. I discovered this myself last week when I realized it was time for new blades, and had our friendly service advisors show me how.
