We recommend that you check your windscreen wipers regularly
Windscreen wiper blades should be checked regularly and replaced at least annually or more often if you cover a high mileage. The rubber blades dry out over time due to road conditions and the environment.The rubber will gradually harden with age causing the wiper blades to screech and judder, chatter or skip. Sometimes damage to your windscreen such as a windscreen chip can nick the rubber of the blade causing it to leave un-swept bands of water on the screen.
You can you tell when you need new wipers? They'll exhibit some of the following symptoms:
- Streaking water
- Leave a milky film when wiping
- skip and judder
Defective windscreen wiper blades could result in:
- Increased risk of a road accident through poor vision
- Your vehicle failing its MOT
Good visibility is crucial to driving safely and the effectiveness of your wiper blades to clear the screen helps to improve the visibility in poor weather conditions. We offer a free wiper blade check, while-u-wait and will fit them for free when purchased from us.
