Whether you think about them regularly or only when they don't work as they should, your windshield wipers are essential to the operation of your vehicle as you travel through Fairfax Station VA. Knowing what to look for as signs that your windshield wipers need replacing is half of the battle to protecting yourself. Couple that with knowing what type of windshield wipers you should replace them with is the other half, and luckily we are here to provide tips on both topics.

When should I replace the windshield wipers?

  • Rather than driving blindly - or nearly blindly - through Clifton VA or Springfield, VA, take a moment or two to check the rubber part of the windshield wiper blade. If you find cracks, missing pieces or even that parts are "wavy", these are sure signs your windshield wiper blades need updating.
  • If your windshield wiper blades do not show any signs of wear and tear, check out the windshield after you have used the blades. If you see signs of streaks, or even areas that were not cleaned, these two signs also indicate the necessity to replace your windshield wiper blades.

What to look for in a windshield wiper blade:

  • Choosing the right size windshield wiper blade is the most important factor of windshield wiper replacement. If you are unsure of the right size, stop in and ask one of our trained technicians at Wiygul Automotive Clinic in VA.
  • Consider the cost of the windshield wiper blade when deciding on what type to purchase. Most brands are competitively priced and offer the same basic function. However, if you choose to purchase a high-end windshield wiper blade you can choose one based on performance or for specialty use such as winter driving.
