Many drivers have an “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it” attitude. If people give their car’s wipers a thought at all, it’s probably long past the time they’re due for Bridgman windshield wiper replacement. But it’s important to make sure your car’s windshield wipers are working correctly. In addition to being dangerous, driving with broken or cracked wiper blades can permanently scratch the car’s windshield.
Wipers need to be inspected regularly. A good rule of thumb is to replace the wiper blades every six months. Clean them with a wet towel and wipe away any dirt and debris that may have accumulated
The wiper blades’ soft rubber can be damaged by extreme weather conditions. Check the blades for cracks and corrosion and look for worn areas and spots where the rubber has become hard. While you’re checking the condition of the wiper blades, examine the level of the wiper fluid and add more to bring it to the proper level if necessary. Check the nozzles to make sure they’re in working condition and spraying evenly. If the nozzles aren’t working right, wipe them gently with a soft cloth to see if dirt is blocking them.
Signs of windshield wipers that need replacement include wipers that squeak, skip, and leave smears and streaks on the windshield. If you find it difficult to see out of the windshield while the wipers are running, it’s another sign they need to be replaced.
Once you’ve decided to replace the windshield wipers, it’s essential to make the best choice. You can buy wiper blades at big-box discount stores and auto parts stores, but we don’t recommend putting budget wipers on your vehicle. If you do, you’ll probably regret it when you’re driving in heavy rain or snow, and you can’t see the road clearly.
