How Are Your Windshield Wipers Holding Up? Posted on Mar 20 2018
We’ve been getting a lot of rain lately in Southern California. It’s good to help avoid another drought, but we all know how dangerous it can be driving on these busy freeways when things are so wet. Having good windshield wipers is crucial to your visibility and overall safety as a driver.
Windshield Wiper Blade Replacement
The problem with windshield wiper blades is that they can weaken even when they are not used often. You may have gotten new wiper blades last year during the rainy season. Then, they suffered through the hot and dry summer and fall seasons and the rubber naturally deteriorates. By the time it starts raining again, the wiper blades don’t work as well as you want. Fortunately, wiper blades are fairly inexpensive and easy to replace, whether you try to do it yourself or you want to come into Bill’s Quality Auto Care for expert wiper blade installation.
Windshield Cleaning System Maintenance
While you are here, we can check out your windshield wiper system. If the wipers aren’t working properly, it may not necessarily be the blades that are the problem. The settings may be off, fittings could come loose, a wiper could have gotten bent or one of the windshield washer fluid nozzles may get clogged up. Remember that you will likely use your windshield wipers throughout the year when your windshield is dirty (or when someone else on the road annoyingly spritzes your car with their windshield washer fluid). You want your windshield washer fluid to be at the proper level and you want it to come out consistently from the nozzles for the best possible cleaning results.
