When should I replace my windshield wipers?

Pro Muffler & Brake Shop Inc Tech Answer:

Well, most Benton Harbor drivers wait until they fail. The problem with that is that you find out they have failed when you actually need them most – a little too late.Wiper blades are really a safety system for Benton Harbor drivers. As you can imagine, 90% of our driving decisions are based on what we see. If you can’t see well because your wipers can’t clear your windshield, your ability to drive safely is significantly impaired.So the simple answer: of course, Benton Harbor drivers should change your wipers if they don’t work well. But replace them before they go bad so they are always ready when that storm hits. For some Benton Harbor drivers, once a year may be enough. For others – those who drive a lot, whose wipers are exposed to a lot of sun, or use their wipers more – replacing the blades a couple of times a year might be in order.

There several types of wiper blades. The conventional blade is the base model. On the other end of the spectrum are beam blades. These have a solid beam that provides uniform pressure over the entire wiper surface for better contact with the windshield. And there are hybrid blades that are a combination of conventional and beam blades.

Upgraded wiper blades last longer and provide a cleaner wipe. Benton Harbor drivers can always upgrade, but should never go with a lower grade blade than what was installed on your vehicle from the factory.

Finally, there are special winter blades. The special design of winter wiper blades resists snow and ice build-up in the blade.

Remember, using your wipers on an icy windshield will tear up your wiper blades. Scrape your windshield before running your wipers.

Your friendly and knowledgeable Pro Muffler & Brake Shop Inc service advisor can give you wiper blade options and help you select what’s best for this safety system.
