After a long winter, you may need to replace the windshield wipers. This is because during the winter, the wipers will operate at removing ice, snow, and frost. They will even go over ice chunks that could rip or damage the blades. If this continues without being replaced, then the wipers will no longer be efficient at clearing the windshield. When there is an issue with the wipers, you will start to notice that they chatter or vibrate against the windshield. This will also indicate that the wipers are not properly operating against the windshield. You can also notice that there are smear marks on the windshield as well.
Improve the Visibility by Cleaning the Windshield Wipers
Ideally the windshield wipers should be changed every six months or after summer and winter. This way you can help ensure that the wipers are always in the best condition and able to operate and clear the windshield effectively. You should also make sure to check the rear wiper of the vehicle if there is one. By inspecting the rear wiper, you can help to ensure the best visibility as you look behind too. The wipers can become damage just by sitting outside as well. The sun can cause the rubber portion of the wiper to dry out and crack.
You should also make sure to check the windshield washer fluid in your vehicle as well. This should also be at the proper amount indicated on the reservoir. If you notice that the fluid is going low, often, make sure to schedule an appointment with us. That way we can inspect it for any leaks or damage to the system. If there is any issue, always make sure to have it repaired as soon as possible so it prevents further cost and issues.
