Windshield Wiper Blade Replacement

Keeping your vehicle properly maintained should also include periodic inspection of the wiper blades. The rubber material will naturally wear away with consistent use and time. They are not only exposed to the sun, but the continual action of removing debris as well rain and snow will eventually erode the quality of the material.

Blades that streak the glass or squeak are an indicator that replacement is likely. They should flow smoothly across the windshield. It’s recommended to change them before they wear too far and begin to scratch the glass. If one wiper is the culprit, it’s advisable to replace them both. It’s just a matter of time before the other one goes as well.

Your owner’s manual will direct you on the size and type appropriate for your vehicle. You can also measure the blade you currently have. If you have any questions on how to replace your wiper blades, stop in to Lake Charles Toyota. We’re here to help.
