Good windshield wiper blades are key to windshield wiper performance. They give you high visibility when driving through rain, snow, and even fog. Unfortunately, windshield wiper blades are one of the most sensitive parts when it comes to wear and tear. To maintain visibility, we recommend replacing your wiper blades every 6-12 months.
Signs That Indicate You Need New Wiper Blades
If you can’t remember when you last changed the wiper blades, no worries – you can usually tell when it is time to replace them by inspecting them and evaluating their performance.
Streaking on the Windshield
If the wipers can’t effectively clear the moisture on your windscreen but instead leaves behind blurry streaks, it is evident that you need to replace them.
Chattering or Squeaking Sounds
When wipers are noisy, it is basically telling you it is time to let them go. It means that the rubber is dirty or worn off. In some cases, you can remedy the problem by wiping off your wipers.
Rubber Splitting and Cracking
When the wiper's rubber is worn down this much, it is beyond repair. You need to replace them soon.
If the frames on the windshield wipers are warped or bent, it is time to replace the wipers. Otherwise, they won’t be able to reach certain parts of the windshield.
