How often should wipers be changed and what are signs they are going bad?
Modified 2 Years ago.
Most manufacturers recommend inspecting your wiper blades every six months for wear. Besides wear from exposure to the elements, the rubber component in a wiper blade deteriorates due to road debris, chemicals, climate and ozone exposure. Failures can be identified by excessive noise, streaking and chattering. If the rubber has started to tear apart from the blade it should be replaced immediately.
