What Needs To Be Done:
Windshield wiper blades need to be inspected and replaced, if needed, on a regular basis.
Why Do It?
- Windshield wiper blades are made out of rubber, which can wear even with limited use.
- By being certain that your windshield wiper blades are in optimum condition, you are ensuring the safety of your vehicle and its passengers.
- If you are driving your car in pouring rain, snow or sleet, worn-out wiper blades can impede the wipers’ ability to clean the windshield, which can limit your visibility.
- Making sure your windshield wipers are newly inspected and replaced, if necessary, can help ensure safety.
The frequency at which your windshield wiper blades need replacement depends, in part, on the conditions where you live and drive.Some general information is listed below, but always defer to your car owner’s manual and the information that comes with your wiper blades for advice on maintenance.
