Windshield wiper blade replacement is an important part of car maintenance and solves a range of issues that arise during operation:

  • Insufficient Cleaning: Worn wiper blades lose their original flexibility, leading to an inability to fully remove water and dirt from the windshield, impairing visibility.
  • Streaks on Windshield: Weakened or damaged wiper blades can't effectively remove water, leaving streaks and smears that obstruct visibility.
  • Poor Contact: Damaged or deformed blades do not evenly adhere to the entire surface of the glass, leading to areas where water is not removed.
  • Increased Wear on Glass: Hard blades or blades with damaged edges can scratch the glass, creating micro-scratches that over time may lead to cracks.
  • Poor Performance in Cold Weather: Rubber of the blades can become stiff and brittle in frost, reducing their effectiveness and potentially leading to breakage in freezing temperatures.
  • Impact on Rain Sensors: In modern cars with rain sensors for automatic wiper control, worn blades can affect the accuracy of these systems.

Replacing wiper blades ensures the cleanliness and clarity of the windshield, contributing to safety and comfort in driving under any weather conditions.

Windshield Wipers Don't Work

The windshield wipers aren't working because the wiper motor is damaged. Alternatively, this might happen if the wiper transmission, control module, or switch gets internally damaged.

Your car's windshield wipers are essential for keeping your windshield clear when it's raining or snowing. If they're not working correctly, it's like driving with impaired vision, and that's not safe at all!

To avoid this, pay attention to any strange behaviors from your windscreen wipers. If they're not clearing the windshield properly, making weird noises, or getting stuck, it's time to take action. Once you know the problem, don't hesitate to take your car to your trusted auto shop.
