Wiper Blades

Wipers, whether located on the windshield, rear window, or headlights, are used to clear rain, sleet, snow, and dirt. The wiper system also works together with the windshield washers to clean the windshield while driving.

Windshield Wiper Blades

Wiper blades should be changed every 6,000 to 10,000 miles. Wiper blades will tend to streak when they are dirty. Take a paper towel with some window cleaner and clean the rubber blade whenever you clean the windshield.

Never use your wipers to try and clear ice and snow after your car has been sitting during the winter. The wiper system was never intended to be an ice scraper and over-stressing the wipers can cause damage to the wipers, the wiper linkages and transmission, and the wiper motor. If the windshield wipers don't work, or only operate in a certain mode, check the fuses first. Refer to your car's owner's manual for the location of the wiper fuse. If the fuse is OK, bring your vehicle to a professional service technician who can test and troubleshoot the wiper system.
