Anything odd or out of the norm with the windshield wipers should be taken seriously. If there are problems you notice, make sure to contact us as soon as possible. That way we can properly inspect the vehicle and windshield wipers. If there are problems, we can replace the wipers so your vehicle is safe and reliable again. The wipers are designed to clear the windshield of any precipitation, dirt, or road grime. If they are not able to, then your visibility is decreased when driving, resulting in poor safety.
One noise you may hear is a screech sound. Over time the rubber on the windshield wiper will start to wear or become torn. This can result in the metal part of the blade making direct contact with the windshield when it operates. Not only will it have issues with clearing the windshield, but it can also damage the windshield as well. This can cause scratches and damage to the windshield, resulting in a costly repair bill.
Also be aware if you hear a chatter or vibrating noise against the windshield. If the arm of the wiper is bent or damaged, the wiper will not fit and operate correctly. This can lead to vibrations when the windshield wiper is in motion. Make sure that the wipers are also securely attached to the arm. If you check the wipers and they seem fine, but continue to make a noise, contact us. We will schedule an appointment for you so we can inspect the vehicle and windshield wipers. Also, the rear wiper of the vehicle should be inspected. They are not used as often as the windshield wipers. Over time they can start to become brittle and wear down because of the sun or weather elements. This is why it is important to have them inspected and replaced.
