How often should you inspect your wiper blades?

Inspect your wiper blades about every six months. Even if you don't use them very often, the rubber can deteriorate with time. If your wiper blades are faulty or worn, it's likely they won't be able to grip your windscreen properly. This means they won't be able to remove things like mud, rain or snow effectively.

Check your vehicle owner's manual or the packaging included with your wiper blades for the best info and, if in doubt, chat with your mechanic.

When should you change your wiper blades?

Change your wiper blades as soon as you notice they're not making contact with your car's windshield. This may happen every 6-12 months or so. If you're not sure, ask a professional.
