Signs That Indicate You Need New Wiper Blades

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.

Bent Frames

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.

If it has been at least 12 months since you paid attention to your windshield wiper blades, please get new ones soon. Getting annual wiper replacements can keep you and your loved ones safer on the road. If you need assistance installing wiper blades, please do not hesitate to stop by Georges Complete Auto Repair.
