Replacing Your Windshield Wiper Blades

Although they're small and often overlooked, wiper blades are some of the most important pieces of equipment on your car. If you've ever been in a heavy downpour or thick blizzard, your wipers are the only thing between you and a possible collision. Keeping them well maintained is vital to your safety.

Most wiper blades sit against your windshield. On sunny days, the glass heats up and this can have a destructive effect on the rubber of your blades. They need to maintain their flexibility in order to function correctly, but heat causes the rubber to harden over time as they age. This makes them unable to conform to the arc of your windshield, leaving bare patches that obscure your vision. You can replace your blades yourself using a few tools and a little bit of automotive knowledge.
