Gregg Young Chevrolet of Norwalk serves the greater Des Moines area with new wiper blades. Wipers need to be replaced every six months to a year, or as soon as you can see a difference in driving visibility. When they don’t make good contact with the surface of the windshield, they can make noises, such as chattering, squeaking, skipping, streaking, or smearing. You’ll also see that driving visibility is reduced.

When to Get New Wiper Blades

When you’re checking your wiper blades, look for some of these signs that they need to be changed. One is if they have a broken frame. This looks like the arms are detached at connection points or joints. Another sign that you need new wiper blades is metal corrosion. There also might be visible cracks, tears, and missing pieces on the edge of the rubber squeegee. Test the rubber squeegees by flexing the rubber back and forth.

Aged squeegees will have difficulty conforming to the shape of the windshield and they can cause streaks. Look at the wiping edge of the squeegee for rounded edges. These can prevent the wiper blade from making contact that is strong enough with the windshield and it will reduce the wiping quality. Tug on the wiper blade to make sure that it is securely installed on the wiper arm Also, check to see that the squeegee is secure in the frame of the wiper.

Worn Down Wiper Blades

There can be a variety of factors that contribute to needing new wiper blades. One is the sun, which can give off ultraviolet light and causes ozone deterioration. Another thing that can cause wiper blade deterioration is oil, which can affect the oil. Airborne debris like mud, sand, and dust also can impact the wiper blades.

Finally, moisture can cause the wiper blades to be affected. Wipers can have some common problems. One is streaking, which happens when the rubber squeegee dries. This hardens it, and it will crack. Streaking has other causes, such as road tar or tree sap. Wiper blades may also skip. This happens with it develops a curvature from its lack of use.

Your wiper blades wear down when they are used extensively, and the rubber edges will be rounded instead of squared. Splitting happens when the sun’s ultraviolet rays go through the rubber squeegee, and it will breakdown and separate from the frame. The bent refill vertebra and the bent frames will be the source of inconsistent contact with glass surfaces and it will create skipping or streaking.
