Why You Should Never Leave Your Wiper Blades Raised in Winter or Any Other Time

One of the biggest wiper misconceptions is that leaving your wiper arms up during winter will help prevent freezing. Its actually not entirely true, the blades and arms will still freeze regardless.

The wiper blades in their up position adds a large amount of stress and stretching on the spring inside the wiper arm, so leaving your wiper arm for long periods can stretch and damage the spring leaving you with less wiping pressure, in turn this can cause your wiper blade to miss gaps when wiping.

So when your parked in the snow, the best thing to do is wrap your wiper blades in a plastic bag and leave them down in their normal position.
