The wiper arm is mounted below the windshield and is attached to the wiper linkage, which moves the arms back and forth. The wiper blade itself attaches to the arm, and holds a wiper insert, or wiper refill. The wiper refill is what actually makes contact with the windshield and removes water and snow, allowing you to have a clear view of the road ahead.
Over time, your wiper inserts will begin to wear. The rubber weathers, with cracks and tearing, causing poor contact with the windshield glass and poor clearing.
Have your windshield wiper refills replaced whenever you notice poor windshield clearing and cleaning. Most experts recommend replacing your inserts every six months or so, with variations based on the temperatures and weather conditions. It is important that you obtain the right size blades for your car. Your driver’s side blade will have a different length from the passenger side in most instances, and each vehicle requires a specific size combination.
Windshield wiper refill replacement is important to ensure safety while driving in inclement weather. Have one of our expert mechanics replace your inserts, which will ensure the right size refills, and inspect for any potential problems with the wiper system.
