Car Care Tips – Volume 3
3. Wipers For Winter
Check your wiper blades, which have a lifespan of about a year. If your car doesn’t have the newer “beam blade” style wipers, consider a pair, especially for the winter months. The beam style blades don’t have an external spring to freeze up.
When snow or other freezing precipitation threaten(thankfully we live in the valley), make sure you turn off the wipers when you park so that the next time you turn on your car, the wiper motor’s not fighting to get frozen wipers moving. This can burn out the motor.
Some folks pop their wipers up so they’re not touching the windshield. This little trick will make it easier to scrape your windshield. Some folks believe this wears out the spring that keeps the blade on the glass. And some folks think it’s an affectation. We’ll leave it to you, but if you need help installing or finding out the correct wipers for your vehicle just stop on by Travelers Body & Fender Works today.Back To Promotions Page
