What are the Signs That Wiper Blades Need to be Replaced?

Rubber windshield wiper blades are regularly exposed to the elements. Extreme temperatures, ultraviolet energy from the sun, and mechanical wear and tear all damage the rubber. Cracks in the rubber can tear all the way through, making the blades ineffective.

There are several signs you might notice when it is time to replace wiper blades. The blades may leave streaks of water on the windshield. They may skip as they move across the windshield. If the blade's rubber wears all the way through, the exposed metal arm could scratch the windshield's auto glass.

Still not sure if it's time to replace your wiper blades? Our team at Lithia Reno Subaru can check your wiper blades for wear and tear any time. Stop in today or give us a call to make an appointment.
