We don't often think about the importance of wiper blades to a vehicle's operation until that rainy day comes. Then, we're glad they are in working order. Alfa Romeo of Minneapolis in St. Louis Park, MN wants you to know about some of the signs that will let you know that the wiper blades need to be replaced.

When the wiper blades are in good working order, the windshield will be completely wiped clear of rain and snow. If streaks and smudges are left behind when the blades pass over the windshield, that is a sign of significant wear. It is time for new blades.

There will be some very obvious signs that the wiper blades need to be replaced. If any part of a blade is separating from the rest of the blade, it should be replaced immediately. You should also get the blades changed after the end of winter as cold and ice are very hard on wiper blades.
