Before and After Installation, it is a must that you care for your wiper by maintaining clean wipers and windscreen from any dust, dirt, tar, soot, leaves etc.. Careful not to remove the graphite coat off your wipers, this is what keeps them quiet.
It’s scary to know that over 90% of our driving decisions are made based solely on visual information. One out of every five vehicles on the road has worn wiper blades; so when it’s raining, those with worn wipers are affected and could be in oncoming traffic heading in your direction.
Deficient windshield wipers can mean low or blocked visibility and are extremely frustrating and dangerous. Wiper blades that no longer make proper contact with the windshield surface can significantly impair your visibility as they streak, smear, chatter, skip and squeak.
It’s pretty clear— In order for you to safely react to what’s happening on the road, you need to be able to see it! As a rule, wiper blades should be checked regularly and replaced every six months.
The U hook attachment will be pre-installed on all wipers, this is the most common type of wiper attachment, if you need to remove this, pull up and it will unclip (if your original wiper clip is stuck, you may need a flat tool to release). Your wiper blades may come with additional clips, if they do, you will need to match them againt your existing connector. Have a different clip that you want to use? Align it on the wiper and push down.
When installing your wipers, always protect your windscreen from damage incase the wiper arm snaps down to its original position. After installing your wipers, remove the protector cover from the wiper, this is to protect the rubber during transit.
