Wiper Blade

1. First

Our experts recommend:

  • Replace every six months or when displaying signs of cracks, cuts, tears, streaks or chattering.

2. Next

Do you need new wiper blades? You'll need them if you see these trouble signs:

  • Streaking - Tree sap, road tar or other grime can harden and crack the rubber, leading to streaks.
  • Chattering - Wipers will form a permanent curve if they're parked in one position for an extended period of time, causing them to skip across the windshield.
  • Worn rubber - Wipers require a defined edge to do their job.
  • Split rubber - Old wiper blades, or those exposed to excessive ultraviolet rays, can split along their length.
  • Bent refill vertebra or wiper frames-the backbone of the blade applies pressure against the windshield.
