Replacing Wiper Blades

Most of us don't even think about our wiper blades until it rains and we see that they aren't doing such a great job of clearing the windshield. Did you know that you should replace them about every 6 months or at least once a year? When did you change your wipers last?

Of course even I'm guilty of waiting until that rainy day to change mine. It's certainly no fun to have to stand in the rain to do this, but it's important that you can see clearly through your windshield. To avoid an accident you need to be able to see and react in time.

In this video I'll show you how easy it is to replace them yourself and save you money. Make sure that you ask for help if you are buying them from an auto store. Many times the driver's side wiper is longer than the passenger side. You can look this up in the wiper guide book in the wiper section or ask them to look it up for you on the computer. Some stores will even offer to put them on for free!

Don't compromise your vision of the road, check your wiper blades and replace them before it rains.

  1. I think, even with the 6-month limit in using wipers, car owners should still know how to determine when to change them. It should be something like second nature to them. ;] Actually, the signs are fairly noticeable given enough attention, especially with the quality of the wipe. Another indicator is the physical condition. Cracks and discoloration would be visible. -->Sandy Gonzales
