How to check your windscreen wipers

We often only realise our wipers need replacing, when it’s raining. It’s better not to get into this annoying and often unsafe situation in routinely testing them when it’s not

raining. This way you can get them replaced before the next rain.

Just like other parts of your vehicle, wipers go through wear and tear over time too. Usage, sun, cold temperatures takes its toll, especially on the rubber compromising the wiper performance. So squeaking or streaking blades are sure signs of wiper damage and it’s time to replace them.

When Should You Replace Your Wiper Blades? Just like other parts of your car, wiper blades too go through wear and tear over time. Everyday use can take a toll on the rubber blades which reduces their performance and can damage the windshield. You can look for warning signs such as squeaking sounds, streaking and splitting. These signs of damage suggest that it is time for wiper blade replacement

  1. Your wipers are leaving streaks on your windshield.
  2. You are hearing a squeaking noise from the blades
  3. The rubber on the blades is cracked or failing
  4. The frame of the blade is bent or damaged

To do a quick wiper check, park the car and ensure you have enough washer fluid. Then check if the wipers glide nicely across the screen without uneven streaking, scratching or skipping. If they do – time to have them replaced!

Did you know that wiper blades come with an expiration date? If your wipers are older than a year, then you should consider changing them. As automotive experts we recommend to have wipers changed between six to twelve months. In any case, it is crucial to inspect the condition of your car wipers every now and then.
