Wiper Blades

Posted on 25 July, 2013 at 15:50 Comments comments (145)
"It may surprise you to know that the first windshield wipers invented were operated manually. The driver physically had to move a lever back and forth inside the car. Today, of course, windshield wipers work electronically. Some vehicles (especially SUV types) even have windshield wipers on the rear window as well. Some vehicles even have wipers on the headlights! Wiper blades work like squeegees. A thin rubber strip is attached to the blade arm which is swept across the windshield to wipe away the water. A rubber on new blades is clean and smooth, so that water can be wiped away. As blades age and become warn, the seal against the window lessens due to nicks or cracks in the rubber or from becoming brittle with age. Worn blades can leave streaks on the windshield that interes with driver visibility. It is important to clean the wiper blades to remove and dirt build up. Your vehicles windshiled washer system will help keep the windshield and the wipers clean. Wiping the rubber edge with window cleaner until clean will prolong the blade's life. When you notice any change in visibility due to the wipers performance, replace them with new ones." This will help you to drive safely with all of this rain we have been having lately.
