How Often Should You Have Your Windshield Wiper Blades Replaced?

It’s easy to forget about your windshield wiper blades and having them replaced, but this critical component’s routine maintenance is key to safe driving and visibility. Our certified technicians at Volkswagen Cypress recommend you change out your wiper blades approximately every six to twelve months. This timeframe may depend on your wiper usage, where you store your vehicle and the environment in which you drive. Checking your windshield wiper blades for wear and damage can prevent auto accidents, as well as unnecessary windshield damage. If you can’t remember the last time you had your wipers replaced, now would be a good time!

Signs That Your Windshield Wiper Blades Should Be Replaced

If you’re wondering how you know when your wiper blades need to be replaced, check the following list. If your Volkswagen’s blades show any of these issues, schedule an appointment today to have them changed by our certified technicians.

  • Blades streak over the windshield, skipping areas
  • Lack of blade contact with your windshield
  • Blades make squeaking or clacking sounds
  • Impaired visibility while driving
  • Broken or bent frames
  • Degradation of the rubber in your blades
  • Rounded edges on your blades

Why is it Important to Have My Windshield Wiper Blades Replaced?

The most obvious reason is also the most important. Good visibility while driving in inclement weather, whether rain, snow, or sleet, can prevent auto accidents and damage to your VW car or SUV. Don’t risk not being able to see during a storm, or getting caught unprepared. Your Volkswagen needs functioning wiper blades that thoroughly remove precipitation and buildup up of debris. Bring your VW in to our certified technicians and they’ll make sure you have reliable blades installed.

What if I Delay Replacing My Wiper Blades?

Damaged and worn windshield wiper blades can scratch and impair your Volkswagen’s windshield, costing you hundreds of dollars to prematurely replace your windshield. Your wiper blades degrade over time with normal use, can be damaged by sunlight and debris, and can swell due to moisture. Heat can cause them to become brittle and crack. These alterations can cause further issues with your wiper frames, causing them to bend and warp.
