Windshield Wiper Blade Replacement

Your vehicle’s maintenance should include routine checks of the humble windshield wiper blades. They perform an invaluable service to your ability to drive. The wipers’ rubber material, as a natural substance, will crack and wear away over time.

Their exposure to the sun combined with the continual movement of clearing away rain, snow, and debris requires them to be replaced from time to time. If you see the blades skip as they move, it may be time for a new set. Streaks across the glass are another symptom that the material is worn. They can create undo glare in the sun or with night lights. Changing wipers as a pair is recommended, as they usually wear at about the same time.

Your owner’s manual will provide you with replacement information. Another option is measuring one of the blades. When you’re in Anchorage, come by our service center at Lithia Hyundai of Anchorage and speak with one of our service technicians. We’re here to help you with your questions.
