Physical condition

A surefire sign that you’re due for new windshield wipers is the rubber being in poor shape. The rubber part of your wiper blades should be in good condition, and any cracking or brittleness means that the blade won’t be as effective on rainy spring drives.

Not quite music to your ears

If you’re using your wiper blades to improve your visibility in a light rain, you may hear some squeaking. But if squeaking or dragging sounds are persistent in all conditions, it probably means your blades aren’t doing what they should.

Streaks and missed spots

When your windshield wiper blades are in good shape, they’ll leave a clear and clean path in their wake. A blade that either doesn’t clear away all the water or leaves behind smudges likely needs to be replaced.

These and other signs can tell you that you’re due for new windshield wipers this spring. If you are, bring your vehicle to High River Toyota near Calgary, AB. Our service pros can equip your vehicle with a new set in no time at all and get you back on the road toward springtime fun.
