The colder weather is now upon us, there is no disputing that for anyone who ventured out to their vehicle in the early morning hours this weekend. Frost was abundant and the annual chore of scraping and brushing has begun but don’t fear, for VIP AutoPro is here!!!
It is easy to forget about your windshield wiper blades though. These quiet workhorses do an unsung job for us as we drive down the road. These blades work very hard to ensure that the road ahead of us is clearly visible…but they do wear out and usually at the worst time possible. Windshield wipers remove snow, ice, dirt and rain from our car and we are able to arrive at our destination (work, school, family adventures) because of those important little workhorses!
Those wiper blades that have been on your car have weathered through the baking of the summer, survived the ups and downs of a rainy fall and now with the temperature dropping well below freezing, it is a wise idea to swap them out for blades designed to battle against Canadian Winters. in general, wiper blades should be changed twice per year (once in the spring and once in the late fall early winter).
Here are a few signs that your wiper blades need to be replaced as soon as possible though:
- Blades are leaving streaks and smears behind.
- Make squeaking or chattering noises
- Blades leave behind large spots of water
- Cracks or tears in the windshield wiper blades
If you notice any of the signs above, you should replace your blades right away. The team’s at any of the 4 London VIP AutoPro locations can carefully inspect and replace your windshield wiper blades.
