Your car’s windshield wipers may not seem to be a safety feature. When you think about it, the wipers are one of your vehicle’s most important pieces of safety equipment. They allow you to see the road clearly by removing rain, snow, sleet and dirt from the windshield. Like many other components in your car, the wipers must be replaced periodically. If you live in Green Acres, windshield wipers are easy to replace when you bring your vehicle to the Knudtsen Chevrolet Service Center in Post Falls.
Don’t wait until it becomes evident that your car’s wipers need to be replaced. By that time, it’s too late. Keep in mind that driving with old, worn windshield wipers is dangerous. And broken or cracked wiper blades can scratch your vehicle’s windshield permanently. Bring your car to the Knudtsen Chevrolet Service Center when you need fast windshield wiper replacement near Green Acres.
Inspecting your car’s wipers regularly will help ensure they’ll continue to operate safely. Use a wet towel to clean the wiper blades, and wipe away any dirt and debris you find. It’s best to replace the wiper blades every six months.
Extreme weather conditions can damage the soft rubber compound of the wiper blades. Look for cracks and corrosion in the blades. Check for areas that are worn or where the rubber has hardened. Maintaining the proper wiper fluid level is essential, so check it and top it off, if necessary. Inspect the wiper nozzles to determine if they’re working correctly and spraying evenly. If you find a problem, wipe the nozzles gently with a soft cloth to wipe away dirt that may be clogging them.
Watch for signs that your windshield wipers need to be replaced, including wipers that skip, squeak or leave streaks and smears on the windshield. If you’re using the wipers and it’s difficult to see the road, it’s time to replace them.
When you buy new wipers, keep in mind that all windshield wipers aren’t the same. You can find wipers at discount stores and auto parts stores, but we advise you not to put budget wipers on your car. You may come to regret it if you’re driving in inclement weather and find you’re unable to see the road clearly.
