Enhance your view with new wiper blades

You can maximise your driving visibility by keeping your windscreen clean and streak-free. Almost every decision you make on the road is based on what you can see, so it’s important to make sure that your windscreen is free of any marks or debris that could impair your sight and distract you while you’re driving.

Your wiper blades are regularly exposed to rain, heat, frost, dirt and insects, and can deteriorate over time. So regularly check that your windscreen wipers are in good condition and working as expected.

A clear, unobstructed windscreen provides better driving visibility.
See the clear difference with high-performance windscreen wiper blades.



How long do windscreen wiper blades last?

We recommend changing your wiper blades about every 12 months, depending on the frequency of use and exposure to harsh conditions.

To achieve optimum results from your wipers, consider replacing your wiper blades as soon as you notice a change in the performance which could impact your view through the windscreen.

What are the signs that your vehicle’s windscreen wipers need replacing?

Stripes and Streaks

If your wipers leave a trail like a paintbrush with missing bristles – causing visible streaks and stripes on your windscreen – it’s time to replace your wiper blades. This can be caused by pollution, dirt and insets tearing the wiper rubber

Unwiped Section

Old and ineffective wiper blades may no longer touch every part of the surface of your windscreen, leaving uncleaned sections that can inhibit your view of the road ahead. This can be caused by a bent tension strip or deformed wiper blade due to long-term resting in the parked position in high temperatures.

Cross Beam

When large smears are left on the surface of your windscreen, it may mean that your wiper blades are missing large portions of their rubber – a clear sign that they need replacing. This can be caused by the corrosion of the wiper blade frame due to environmental influences and excessive play in the wiper frame through mechanical wear.

Rattle and Flutter

An annoying rattling sound or wipers that only clean in vertical lines are clear signs that your windscreen wiper blades need to be replaced. This can be caused by environmental impacts such as ozone and UV rays, which destroy the wiper rubber’s chemical structure, resulting in cracks and tears.

Don’t put it off any longer.

We can change your windscreen wipers, fast and cost-effectively.

Choosing the right wiper blades for your vehicle

Finding the right type of wiper blades to suit your car is important for maximum visibility and aiding in driver safety. As every car is different, there are a number of wiper blades available that are designed to fit your vehicle.

We recommend choosing a trusted brand, like Bosch. With a history that dates back to 1926 and a strong focus on safety and reliability, they have a wide range of technology built into their windscreen wiper blades such as aerodynamics and patented rubber coating for optimum wiper performance Ask us today which one is right for you.

Tips for caring for your wiper blades

There are a few quick and simple actions you can do to prolong your wipers blades to help keep your windscreen clean and clear.

Wiper blades are intended to remove rain and water from a windscreen while on the move. So it’s important you give your windscreen a proper clean and wipe over the wiper rubbers regularly to clear any debris. At the same time, we recommend removing leaves and coarse dirt from around the windscreen before using your wipers so they don’t get caught up in the blades during the wiping motion.

Don’t forget to check the water level in the windscreen washer and keep it topped up. If you have it, add some quality washer fluid.

Can I replace my wiper blades myself?

Whilst changing your wiper blades might look fairly straightforward, it can be a little tricky, especially if you’ve never done it before.

It’s important to replace wiper blades correctly, as if they aren’t fitted properly, the wiper blade could become loose and may cause damage to your windscreen.

We recommend choosing O’Brien® AutoGlass experts to replace your windscreen wipers to ensure the right fit, every time.

Where can I buy BOSCH wiper blades?

Bosch Windscreen Wiper Blades can be purchased from your local O’Brien® AutoGlass branch.

You can ask one of our experts to change your wiper blades next time you have your glass repaired or replaced, or we can show you how to fit them yourself.
