If your headlights work but you still struggle to see the road, it could be your wiper blades that are causing the issue. If they’re not as effective as before or the rubber has worn down to the point that it makes a screeching noise and even scratch the windshield, it is time to get them replaced. If you need other services for your vehicle anyway or want a professional to replace your windshield wipers, then bring your vehicle to the trained professionals at St. Louis Chevrolet Service Center.
There are several signs that your windshield wipers should be switched out for new ones. One of the clearer signs is that it doesn’t remove rain, dirt, dust or other debris from your windshield as effectively as before, but looking at the wipers could give you an idea of why their efficiency has dropped. If the rubber is peeling from the wiper blade itself, it won’t be able to clear the windshield as efficiently. Bent blades can also be a problem as they won’t make complete contact with the windshield. Having streaks on your windshield is another sign that your wiper blades are ready to be replaced. If there is a scratching sound or other strange noise that come from the windshield wipers, it’s a good idea to get them replaced.
If you delay getting your windshield wiper blades replaced, there could be several consequences. One of the biggest ones is that it won’t remove rain, dirt or other debris as well or at all, and that will hinder your view of your road. That could cause an accident to you, your passengers and other drivers on the road. If the wiper blades keep scratching at the windshield, it could eventually damage the windshield, and the cost to repair or replace the windshield will cost more than just getting your wiper blades replaced.
