Wiper Blades and Fluids
Services / Wiper Blades and Fluids
How it's done:
- Remove and replace wiper blade(s).
- Check/replace fluids.
A windshield wiper is a pivoting arm with a long rubber blade that swings back and forth over the windshield, removing debris and improving visibility. The wiper motor powers it. As sun and weather damage these exposed rubber elements, they do need replacing periodically. Windshield washer fluid also functions to keep your windshield clean and clear. An electric pump moves the washer fluid from the reservoir to your windshield.
Plan to have your wiper blades inspected ever fall for optimum visibility in the rainy season.
