Windshield wipers are an important part of your car and they need to be functioning properly in order to keep your windshield clean. One way you can tell that something is wrong with your wiper blades is if they start scratching up the surface of the glass on either side of the blade as it sweeps across. If this sounds like what’s happening, then there are a few steps that you can take to either have the windshield repaired or replaced.
What Causes The Blades to Scratch Your Windshield?
The sound of your windshield wipers can be a dead giveaway that they need to replaced soon. When the rubber edge is worn out or damaged, metal comes into contact with your car’s glass and leaves tiny scratches on it.
Since the blades are designed to press firmly against the glass, a quick oscillating action of the wipers can result in metal scraping off small indentations. If left unchecked for long enough, scratches and streaks will only worsen over time.
Results of Windshield Scratches
A scratched windshield is not just a cosmetic problem. Scratches can lead to driving distractions such as water streaks while the wipers are in use and scratches that reflect sunlight from oncoming cars, to name a few. The wiper blades will wear out more quickly with all of this extra work they must do to keep your field of vision clear enough for safe operation of the vehicle at any time!
