How do I know if I need new wiper blades?

Wiper blades should last around 12 months on average, though heavier use or poor weather could mean they need to be replaced sooner.

If your wiper blades no longer push away rain, sleet and snow effectively, you may need to replace them.

There’s nothing more annoying than ineffective wiper blades. Check regularly though the year, so you can drive safely and with confidence.

How do my windscreen wipers become damaged?

Over time, regular use can wear rubber blades down resulting in irregular performance, such as squeaking, streaking and smearing. Your wipers may also jump on the windscreen if they are not operating effectively.

It’s not just usage that wears out your wiper blades. High heat can cause drying and cracking of rubber blades in summer, as can ice on the windscreen during the winter months.

How can I check wiper blades on my car?

Checking the condition of your wiper blades can be done from the comfort of your own home:

  • Prepare a damp cloth
  • Lift the wiper arm away from the glass surface
  • Gently wipe the rubber blade of the wiper clean with the damp cloth
  • When clean, run your fingers down the rubber blade, checking for any irregularities like cracks, notches, portions of rubber missing

If any of these irregularities are present, it could be time to change your wiper blades.

Which wiper blades do I need?

You’ll need to check which type of wiper blades your car manufacturer specifies. Once you have, you can usually select from a range of brands. We recommend Michelin, Valeo, Lucas and Bosch.
