Pocatello Windshield Wipers

If we asked you to name one of your car's essential safety features, the seat belts might come to mind. Or perhaps you'd pick the airbags, the brakes, the traction control system, or the different driver-assistance features. One feature you may not consider is your car's windshield wipers. But the fact is the windshield wipers are a crucial safety feature. Here in Pocatello, windshield wipers remove dirt, rain and snow from your vehicle's windshield. A clean windshield helps keep you and your passengers safe by increasing visibility.

Many drivers don't pay much attention to their car's windshield wipers until they're well past the point where they needed windshield wiper replacement in Pocatello. They think they're working well enough and tell themselves they'll change them one of these days. Don't wait. In addition to being dangerous, cracked or broken wiper blades can scratch the glass of your car's windshield permanently.

Just like other systems in your car, windshield wipers should be inspected and replaced regularly, preferably every six months. Clean your vehicle's wipers periodically by wiping the blades with a wet towel to remove the accumulated dirt and debris.

Extreme weather, dirt, and other factors can damage the soft rubber of your car's wiper blades. Inspect the wiper blades, looking for cracks or areas that look worn or hardened. Check for corrosion on the wiper parts.

Windshield Wiper Replacement in Pocatello

While you're checking the wiper blades, look at the wiper fluid. Examine the level and add more fluid if necessary. Inspect the spray nozzles to make sure they're operating correctly and spraying evenly. If there's a problem, check to see if they're being blocked by dirt by wiping the nozzle gently.

Other symptoms of windshield wipers that need to be replaced include:

  • Wipers that skip
  • Wipers that squeak
  • Streaks or smears on the windshield while using the wipers
  • Poor visability when using the wipers

You have a few choices when it's time to replace your wipers. You can buy a new pair at a warehouse store or an auto parts store. We don't recommend going this route. It's best to purchase wipers that were designed for your vehicle. The experts at the Hirning Buick GMC Service Center can recommend and install the right wipers for your car. Don't make the mistake of buying discount wiper blades you've installed yourself, only to discover they're not working properly in the middle of a storm.
