Your vehicle’s windshield wipers are probably not something you think about very often.

But when you’re driving through heavy rain or snow, and suddenly you find that they are leaving streaks or not clearing your windshield properly, you know you have a problem. Without good wiper blades, your vehicle can quickly become unsafe to drive as inclement weather – or even a splash from a passing truck – will leave you with decreased visibility.

Windshield wiper blade replacement is a quick and easy fix that can make a big difference in your driving experience. There are many different types of wiper blades available, so it’s important to do your research and select the right ones for your vehicle or ask the professionals at Victory Lube which blades are best for your needs.

Wiper blade maintenance is also important. If they become clogged with snow, ice, or dirt, they will not be able to do their job properly. Be sure to clean them off regularly and replace them when they start to show signs of wear and tear.

At Victory Lube, we offer wiper blade replacement and wiper blade installation.

Your vehicle’s manufacturer recommends that you replace your windshield wiper blades every 6 – 12 months. But, based on your driving habits and seasonal conditions, you may need to replace your wiper blades more frequently.

To avoid tricky driving conditions, we recommend looking out for the following signs of wear:

  • Cracked, worn or broken wiper blade rubber
  • Bouncing blades or loud noises when using your wipers
  • Streaks or ‘uncleaned’ areas of your windshield

At Victory Lube, we have a large selection of wiper blades in stock which allows us to service most vehicles. Our technicians are always courteous and professional and will get you back on the road quickly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most manufacturers recommend replacing your wiper blades every six to twelve months, but this will be somewhat dependent on how often you use them and the conditions that they are exposed to.

Although most experts recommend changing your wiper blades on a timed schedule, you should also consider changing them if you notice any of the following:

  • Squeaking noises (this could be a sign that the rubber or silicone has been damaged).
  • Vibration/chattering (indicates that parts of the rubber are moving faster than the wiper blade arm).
  • Excessive streaking.
  • Wet spots left behind on your windshield.
Knowing the size of wiper blades that you need is as easy as looking in your car’s owner’s manual or using any number of online tools that allow you to enter your vehicle’s make, model and year, to let you know which blades are right for your vehicle.

Windshield wipers are an important part of your vehicle and should be replaced regularly to ensure optimum performance.

If your windshield wipers froze to your windshield, you can use a heat gun or hair dryer to soften the adhesive and then carefully peel them off. Be careful not to damage the paint or windshield. You can also turn up the defrost setting on your car and wait for them to thaw.

When it snows, there’s no need to raise your windshield wipers. In fact, attempting to do so can actually over-strain the wiper blades and cause them to break. Simply wait for the snow to melt and the wipers will do the rest.

There are three main types of windshield wipers: conventional, beam and hybrid. Conventional wipers have a single arm that sweeps back and forth across the windshield. Beam wipers have two arms that extend from the top of the windshield to the bottom and move in opposite directions. Hybrid wipers have a conventional arm and a beam arm, which work together to clean the windshield.

Standard windshield wipers are fixed in length and extend to clean the entire windshield. Extendable windshield wipers have a telescoping arm that allows them to be extended or retracted to different lengths, depending on the size of the windshield.
