If you’re gonna drive, you’ve got to be able to see! So having a good pair of windshield wipers is extremely important. It seems like your wiper blades are always at their worst when you need them the most. But windshield wipers are like most other vehicle parts – they require regular attention in order to work their best.
In our intense Texas heat, wiper blades become hard and brittle, and then tear. They also lose their flexibility and just don’t cover the windshield effectively.
Worn wiper blades aren’t just a safety hazard; they can also scratch your windshield. That may require replacing the entire windshield – a big cost for such a little part.
Green & White Automotive can install quality replacement blades. Of course you also need washer fluid to help your blades do their work. Even though Green & White Automotive will top off the washer fluid with a full service oil change, it is a good idea to have some extra fluid at home, or in the car if you are on a long trip.
Always use windshield washer fluid. Plain water may freeze in the fluid reservoir and won’t do a good job of cleaning your windows. And remember that some vehicles have two reservoirs: one for the windshield and one for the back window – which may be under the hood or somewhere in the back.
So follow these tips to keep your windshield clear and your eye on the road.
