Driving in a rainy day.The first thing that comes into question is how safe are you in this wet and gloomy weather. Are the front and back lights working? Are the tyres in good condition? A responsible driver always makes sure anything that puts their risk in stake, worth a double check.
However, one thing that drivers always overlook is not the ones that are not unreachable by any human’s eyesight; instead, it’s right in front of the eyes. The wipers.
Have you experienced on a rainy day when the wiper does not deliver its job well? That annoying squeaking sound? That smeared windshield that blocks your view? A faulty wiper can create unnecessary obstruction that could endanger the drivers’ safety and everyone around.
That means it is time for you to replace your wiper. Having a routine check on the condition of the wiper is as important as getting your car serviced on its scheduled date. Wipers should be replaced every 6 months to one year. However, the signs could be seen even before the 6 month period. The list below outlines the signs that you need to pay attention to your wiper before calling it for a replacement.
1. Wiper Rubber Parts
The rubber parts should not have imperfections as the piece could have signs of breaks, cracks and splits. If you notice those signs, then replace it quickly. If you have used it for a long time then you could see the rubber parts may have a rounded look.
