To be on the safe side, you should replace your windshield wiper blades at least every six to 12 months. Functioning wiper blades maintain healthy windshield visibility, a major aspect of overall driver safety. Based on recommendations from our Star Volvo Cars Greensburg service department, here's how to tell that your windshield wiper blades need replacement.

Sounds & Sights

Blades that break down make noise and leave unsightly squeegee patterns on your windshield. Sometimes the sound verges on chattering or squeaking. The patterns may resemble uneven smudges or streaks.

Wiper blades have many enemies: high heat/cold, moisture, ultraviolet light, oils and environmental debris. These enemies cause wiper blades to harden, erode, become brittle, split or break.

Replace Blades Sooner Than Later

Even the friction of wiper blades rubbing your windshield each day wears them down. Have your windshield wiper blades replaced during routine service, oil changes or before the new season hits hard.
