Driving in the rain can be a real danger and with April showers right around the corner, now is a great time to check the health of your wiper blades.
You can visibly check for wear on the blades by looking for cracks and breaks along the rubber. If they are worn, it’s best to change them out.
Replacement rubber blades are available, but you’re better off buying entire new arms. Make sure you purchase the right fit for your car. The package will come with more parts than you’ll need so don’t worry if there are parts left over.
Click the video above to see how to disconnect your old blades and install the new ones.
