Windshield Wiper Blade Replacement

Regular maintenance of your vehicle should also include inspection of the wiper blades. Rubber, as an organic material, only has a certain lifespan. Exposure to the elements, including the sun, in addition to regular use in removing dirt and rain eventually erodes the material.

When you notice streaking across the glass or hear the blades squeak, it’s most likely time to replace them. Letting them go too long can scratch the windshield. It’s also recommended to replace the pair at the same time. It’s common for them to decay at roughly the equivalent speed.

If you have your owner’s manual, it will have information on the appropriate size and type for your vehicle. You can also measure the blade currently on your vehicle. We are happy to assist you with your questions. Stop by our service center here at Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram of Corpus Christi when you’re in Corpus Christi, TX.
