Ford Windshield Wiper Service
When Should I Replace My Windshield Wiper Blades?
Like any other component of your car, your wiper blades will wear down over time making them less effective at clearing off your windshield. Visibility is paramount to safe driving and regardless of how often you use your wipers, you should ideally be replacing them with some regularity. We recommend replacing your wiper blades once you notice streaking, chattering, or splitting but some other reasons your wipers may not be working properly include:
- Your windshield wiper blades are torn: Your wiper blades primary job is to clear your windshield. If they’re leaving behind a streaky mess or residue, they may be torn and it’s time to upgrade to a new pair of wiper blades.
- The wiper motor has failed or the fuse has burnt out: The windshield wiper motor runs on an electrical motor and as such can burn out or quit unexpectedly. In this case, your windshield wipers will not work at all so you’ll need to replace the windshield wiper motor and fuse right away.
- The wiper pivot nut is loose: Your windshield wiper arms are connected by a nut on a pivot that allows them to function but in the common instance that the nut is loose, the wiper arm will not move. The solution to this issue is to tighten the nut but if the problem still persists, have your wipers inspected by a trusted, professional mechanic.
