How do you know when to get your windshield wiper blades replaced? That's the main reason our Rick Hill BMW team decided to file this brief blog post. Here's a basic intro to windshield wiper issues and suggested replacement intervals.

When to Replace Windshield Wiper Blades

You should replace your windshield wiper blades every six months, once annually or whenever wiper blades show signs of malfunctioning. When wiper blades malfunction, they may chatter or squeak, skip over or streak your windshield. Poorly squeegeed windshields reduce your visibility dangerously, diminishing driver safety.

Why do Windshield Wiper Blades Malfunction?

Degraded structural integrity is the main reason that windshield wiper blades malfunction. Breakage and erosion can arise from exposure to plain old everyday use, friction, moisture, environmental debris and ultraviolet rays. Oils from car wax and high/low seasonal temps are other culprits.

If your windshield wiper blades need replacing pronto, schedule a service appointment at our Kingsport dealership today. We hope to meet you soon.
