Winter is knocking at the door with its dark and rainy days. It’s important to take care of your vehicle so that you’re driving with confidence knowing your vehicle is as safe as possible. One small, but important element of auto repair is making sure that your windshield wipers are doing their job. This means that as they pass over the windshield, there should not be any skipping, squeaking, or streaking. All it takes is a winter rainstorm to turn worn-out wipers into serious safety hazards.

Here’s some advice from an auto repair shop for taking care of windshield wipers:

  • Check the condition of your current wipers on a regular basis. Lift each wiper arm off the glass and run your finger along the rubber edge. If the rubber is rigid or chipped or produces nonstop streaking, you need new wipers. If they seem to be okay but not clearing the windshield effectively, clean the rubber with windshield washer fluid or mild dish soap and the windshield where the wiper rests. If that doesn’t work, it is time to replace the wipers. Don’t forget the rear wiper on a van or SUV.
  • Even if you live in an area that has very little rain, the rubber on the windshield wipers can still deteriorate. Even the best windshield wipers show signs of deterioration in as little as six months. We recommend replacing them at least twice a year, or more often if they begin to lose their effectiveness. Fortunately, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get good-performing windshield wipers.

Your auto repair shop can help you choose the best wipers for your vehicle. There are three basic guidelines:

  1. If possible, buy the entire wiper assemblies, not just the blades.
  2. Replace wipers in pairs. If one is worn out, the other one isn’t far behind.
  3. Buy the correct wiper shape and size specified for your vehicle. Consult your owner’s manual, or ask your auto repair technician for advice.
  4. Don’t skimp on quality. Generic-brand wipers are cheaper but can wear out in as little as a month or two of consistent use. If your manufacturer recommends a particular brand, try it. Paying now for higher quality wipers may actually save you money as they will last a little longer than the cheaper brands.
