Wiper blades are an essential part of your car maintenance checks but many of us forget to do them. If you find that your wipers are not clearing the screen as they should be or making a noise when they do, it could be a sign that they are damaged. Wiper blades can easily become damaged through wear and tear, extreme weather conditions of even going through a car wash. Often you will not realise that they are damaged until you come to use them and find that they do not clear the screen as they should.
Replacing wiper blades can be as little as £20 for a pair, so it is a small price to pay for safety. Places such as Halfords will supply and fit the wiper blades while you wait (for a small fee, usually about £3) or you can fit them yourself, which is relatively easy to do.
