Have You Changed Your Wipers?

December 14th, 2016

The design of the windshield wiper hasn’t changed for a long, long time…it’s still a strip of rubber that’s pressed against the windshield by a spring arm, and it still Winter Driving in St Louis MOsqueegees water off the glass when it moves back and forth.

The rubber/silicone used for wiper blades may have improved over the years, but it’s still true that even the best wipers are only good for about a year’s time. Normal wear, the sun’s UV rays, and the elements take their toll on windshield wiper material.

If you’re starting to notice chipping, cracking or drying out on your windshield wipers, or if they’re shedding entire strips of rubber, it’s definitely time for a change. Or…if you notice smudges and smears in the field of vision when it’s raining and your wipers are on, you know it’s time to change your wipers.

One more rule of thumb might just be to change your wipers once a year, regardless of condition.

We’re in the dead of winter here in the St Louis area, and you know how the weather gets here in December and January. Don’t compromise your safety by trying to see through a smeared, smudgy windshield. Make an appointment with us at Master Auto Repair in St Louis, MO and make windshield wipers part of your vehicle’s regular, routine preventive maintenance schedule!  `
