Your Windscreen Wipers

Standard

Windscreen wipers are an essential element of your car that often gets overlooked when we think of caring for our vehicle, however ineffective wiper blades can actually cause your car to fail an MOT so you really do need to keep an eye on them.

It’s suggested that you should change your wiper blades at least once a year as the rubber can become hard and actually cause damage to the screen as well as not being effective at clearing it for safe visibility.

If you notice that the blades judder as they move across the glass or make screeching noises this could be a sign they need changing, also if they don’t clear rain and debris off the screen it may also be an indication that they are ready to be changed.

Extremes of weather can easily effect the wiper blade, particularly ice so always make sure that when clearing your screen the blades are not stuck down onto the frozen glass, give them a light spray with de-icer and allow them to thaw before turning the wipers on.
