Windscreen Wiper Blades

Windscreen Wiper Blades

It’s easy to forget how important wiper blades are to driving safety but in fact, having a clear view of the road in bad weather is as critical to safe driving as anti-lock brakes. 

Although the Genuine wiper blades are constructed from some of the best quality components, exposure to the elements can wear and harden the rubber on your wiper blades.

As a general rule, you should have your wipers replaced or at the very least inspected every six months. If your current blades have any of the following problems, it’s time to replace them with Genuine Subaru Wiper Blades.      

Worn Rubber
General rounding of the wiping edge caused by long service.

Chattering
Caused by the “permanent set” or “curve” in the rubber that some wiper blades develop while they are parked. This condition is characterized by the chattering sound the blade makes as it passes over the windshield.

Streaking
Caused by dry rubber that has hardened and cracked. Streaking can also be caused by tree sap, road tar or other foreign substances on the blade rubber. Worn or damaged wipers not only impair your visibility – they can damage your windshield

Split Rubber
A condition found on blades that are old. Sometimes due to the effects of the sun’s ultraviolet rays on the rubber.
