The rubber elements in your wiper blades often become stiff and brittle over time. Besides the damage from the sun, your blades also wear out as they rub back and forth your windshield’s glass surface. As they wear out further, your wiper blades leave blurry spots and streaks on your windshield, impairing proper visibility while on the road. Bring in your car for windshield inspection when you notice reduced visibility and performance. Our technicians will also recommend maintenance schedules based on the manufacturer's recommendations. Typically, we recommend that you bring in your VW for wiper blade inspection every 10,000 miles.

The type of wiper blade and usage affects your blade’s longevity. Regular inspection service can help to keep your blades in pristine condition, ensuring that they last long. Clean your blades regularly to remove the dirt and grime it collects over time. Soak a cloth in washer fluid, then wipe the blade's rubber to increase the lifespan. Besides, ensure that you don’t operate your wiper blades dry as this may increase their wear and tear. When expecting snow, try to lift the wiper blades to prevent them from sticking on the windshield. You could also make a habit of parking in the shade.
