How To Change Windshield Wipers

Windshield Wipers

It may seem trivial but your windshield wipers are one of the many reasons why you can enjoy safe drives around Sartell. A properly working set of windshield wipers allows you to maximize visibility when you’re driving in inclement weather. However, as you use your windshield wipers they’ll begin to wear out and may need to be replaced.

Luckily, the process on how to change your windshield wipers is simple and easy enough for you to do in your own Sauk Rapids garage. Learn how to change the windshield wipers on your vehicle today with the service experts from Eich Mazda!

When Do You Need To Change Your Wipers?

Before we go over how to change your windshield wipers, we want to first touch on how you know it’s time to change your wipers. Most windshield wipers last around six to twelve months but that does change depending on how often you drive in Saint Joseph and even the weather that you’re driving in.

In any case, if you notice your windshield wipers just aren’t working like they’re supposed to, you can always schedule a service appointment with our team and we’ll help you address the issue. Otherwise, if you notice any of the following with your windshield wiper blades, it may be time to replace them:

  • Wiper blades falling apart
  • Scratches on your windshield
  • Screeching noise when wiper blades are in use
  • Cracked rubber on wiper blades
  • Ineffective wiper blades

How To Change Your Windshield Wipers – Step by Step Guide

Before you decide it’s time to visit our Saint Cloud parts center to get some new wiper blades, you can always try to clean them first. On most vehicles, you can simply run your finger carefully along the windshield wiper blade and feel if there’s any dirt or debris.

You can always try wiping the dirt or debris off your windshield wiper blades first before replacing them. However, if cleaning them doesn’t make them any more effective, it’s time to change them. Here’s how to change the windshield wipers on your vehicle:

  1. Your owner’s manual should detail how to put your windshield wipers in the service position.
  2. Carefully remove the wiper blades from the wiper arm. This process can vary depending on your specific model.
  3. This step is optional but we suggest cleaning your windshield to allow your windshield wipers to work properly.
  4. Install the new windshield wipers onto your wiper arms.
  5. Put the windshield wipers back into their original position.
  6. Test your new windshield wipers and confirm that everything is working properly.
