In order to maintain your safety, it is important to replace your windshield wipers regularly. Much like auto glass helps support the structural integrity of your vehicle, each part of your vehicle, including windshield wipers, has its own key duties.
Experts recommend replacing your wiper blades every six months to 6,000 miles.
Windshield wipers are critical to your safety. It's important to have windshield wiper blades replaced every six months, as many of the most important driving decisions are based on a clear, unobstructed view. By following the three steps below, you may extend the life of your windshield wipers.
Here's what you should look for when inspecting your windshield wipers:
To clean your windshield wipers, apply non-abrasive glass cleaner or windshield washer solvent with a soft cloth or a cotton swab. Please consult your owner's manual to see if the manufacturer recommends a specific cleaning solution for wipers.
Be sure to thoroughly clean ice and snow from your windshield and blades before operating your wipers. Heavy ice and snow can damage your blades or cause the windshield wipers to shut off in the event of an overload. If this happens, please consult your owner's manual and follow the manufacturer's suggestions.
