Do you really need to change the wipers in your car? Well, of course, you do. The problem with wipers is that most drivers do not realise that they need to change them until heavy rains start to fall. If your wipers have already deteriorated, your windshield will be left with an uneven wipe that will leave you without a clear view of the road.
To check the quality of your car wipers, make sure to check them once a month and if you find something wrong with them, better replace them right away.
Here are some signs that your wipers need new quality blades:
Worn rubber. It is natural for your wipers to worn out especially as it ages so once you find that the rubbers are worn, just replace them with a new one.
Chattering. They can also develop a chattering sound as they pass across the windshield. This occurs as the rubber create a curve when they are not mostly used.
Streaking. Streaking can happen when the rubber becomes hard and develop cracks. The windshield can also get this from tree sap, road tar and other foreign substances getting in contact with them.
Split rubber. The rubber can be affected by the sun’s ultraviolet rays or simply because the rubber is too old.
Bent wiper frame. Accidents can happen and the wiper can also be bent mostly in automatic car washes.
Wipers may not be one of your top priorities when it comes to adding more accessories to your car but it is one of the most important components on your vehicle that give you more clear visibility while driving on the road. So, if you see that your wipers need replacing, do not hesitate to replace them.
