The thing about worn-out windshield wiper blades is that you never think about replacing them until it’s raining or snowing—and their smeared, chattering performance drives you crazy. So, take a moment right now to recall the last time you turned on the wipers: How did they perform?
If your answer is “not great,” have your ACDelco affiliated technician inspect and possibly replace them. New blades can be swapped out quickly while you wait. There are ACDelco blades to fit just about every car, truck and SUV on the road.
As a rule of thumb, wiper blades should be replaced about once a year, although they should be replaced whenever they start to exhibit streaking, smearing or excessive chattering. Extreme conditions, such as very hot or very cold weather, can affect the natural rubber material of the blades, causing cracks and requiring more frequent replacement.
