Don’t Get Caught Streaking: Change Your Wiper Blades

As a car owner you know and understand the importance of being able to properly see out of the windshield. Properly working windshield wipers are essential to safe driving because they enable the driver to see properly in adverse weather conditions. Below are some indicators that you need to replace your windshield wipers:

  • Streaking- If you notice your windshield wipers are leaving streaks on the glass then it is time to replace them because they are no longer pressing evenly on the windshield and this will affect their ability to properly remove water and debris that may block the driver’s vision.
  • Squeaking- If you notice that your windshield wipers are making noises such as squeaking, it is time to replace them because the rubber is no longer smoothly moving over the glass and will affect the wipers ability to properly clean the windshield.
  • Bouncing- If you notice that your windshield wipers are moving up and down or bouncing then it is an indicator that they need to be replaced. Wipers that bounce have probably outlived their usefulness or this could be an indicator the wiper blade arm needs to be replaced.
