Why is changing windscreen wiper blades important?
It is imperative to have a clear and unimpeded view when driving which is why it’s important to maintain and replace your wipers regularly. As windscreen wipers are continually exposed to heat, frost, dirt, insects and other airborne objects, the blades deteriorate over time and lose their effectiveness. As a high percentage of driving decisions are made based on what a driver can see, if visibility is impaired, driving can become more dangerous if the wiper system is not operating correctly.
How long do windscreen wipers last?
Wiper blades usually last 6 to 12 months depending on the frequency to which your vehicle is used in adverse conditions. To obtain the best performance from your wipers, we recommend changing them as soon as you notice a difference in the clarity of your windscreen under any weather condition.
Signs that your windscreen wipers need replacing
Stripes and Streaks
These are caused by pollution, dirt and insects tearing the wiper rubber.
This is caused by a bent tension strip or deformed wiper blade due to long term resting in the parked position in high temperatures.
This is caused by the corrosion of the wiper blade frame due to environmental influences and excessive play in frame through mechanical wear.
Rattle and Flutter
This is caused by environmental impacts such as ozone and UV rays, which destroy the wiper rubber’s chemical structure, resulting in cracks and tears.
How to replace your wiper blades
- Remove the worn wiper blade from the wiper arm and remove the replacement wiper blade from the packaging.
- Check, and if required, attach the correct adapter to the wiper blade (for multi adapter wiper ranges).
