Windscreen wipers and wiper blades
Worn-out wiper blades give poor vision which could lead to an accident. Have you changed your windscreen wipers in the last 12 months?
As well as affecting your view of the road ahead, worn wipers may damage your screen and potentially cause your vehicle to fail its MOT. We therefore recommend you change your wiper blades at least once a year.
We supply Bosch windscreen wiper blades, so if you need new wipers, simply buy them from your mobile technician, and have them fitted at no additional cost.
Check your windscreen wipers regularly
Windscreen wipers should be checked regularly and replaced at least annually or more often if you cover a high mileage. For example, a vehicle driven more than 18,000 miles a year should have new wiper blades every six months.
Defective wiper blades could result in:
- Your vehicle failing its MOT
- Increased risk of a road accident through poor vision
Signs that you need new wiper blades
From the moment you get new wiper blades, road conditions and the environment start to affect them. The rubber will gradually harden with age causing the wiper blades to screech and judder, chatter or skip.
Sometimes damage to your windscreen such as a windscreen chip can nick the rubber of the blade causing it to leave un-swept bands of water on the screen.
