Do I Need to Replace My Windshield Wipers?

Toyota wiper blade replacement in New Jersey

Like most of the interchangeable rubber components on your car, your windshield wipers will wear out eventually. Harsh weather, like freezing New Jersey winters, will cause them to crack, while extremely hot temperatures may cause them to soften and warp. Enough cycles around the calendar and it’ll be harder for them to do their important job of keeping your vision clear while on the road.

Do Your Wiper Blades Need to be Replaced?

  • Cracked: If the rubber on your wiper blades is severely cracked, it means they don’t have much life left–and it also usually means they’re dried out and probably dragging on your windshield rather than gliding like they should. 
  • Split: If the wiper blade is splitting from its base, you’re at risk of it falling off entirely, leaving you in a precarious situation should you need to clear your windshield.
  • Worn down or worn unevenly: Wiper blades wear down over time from rubbing over the grit and debris on your windshield. If they’re worn down to the base or worn down unevenly in certain sections, they won’t do their job effectively.
