Replacing Your Wiper Blades - How Long Do Wiper Blades Last?

Your Volkswagen’s wipers are one of its most used and yet easy to ignore safety systems. As you use your wipers, they wear down, reducing their effectiveness. You should have your wiper blades changed at least every 10,000 miles or once a year on average. However, you should always look for performance issues as environmental factors can cause your wiper blades to need replacing sooner.

Why Choose OEM Volkswagen Approved Wiper Blades?

The automobile aftermarket is a huge industry and if you need car parts or accessories, you can certainly find them be it online or from a local Seminole automotive parts store. However, not all Volkswagen windshield wipers offer the same quality. You should always use OEM parts when replacing any parts on your Volkswagen, including your wiper blades. OEM wiper blades are designed to fit and work with your Volkswagen’s exact specifications and meet Volkswagen’s high-quality standards.

How Can I Make My Wiper Blades Last?

While wiper blades need regular replacing, you can take steps to help increase their useful lifespan and reduce early replacement costs. To help your windshield blades last longer, pull them up if there’s a chance of ice or snow, and clean them every so often to remove dirt and debris. When you park, try to limit direct sun exposure as UV rays can damage your wipers, and never switch on your wipers when your windshield is dry as the dragging damages the blade’s rubber edges.

What Are Signs New Whipper Blades Are Needed?

If your Volkswagen’s wiper blades need replacing, there will be several signs on a rainy day in Gulfport. These can include your blades dragging, pulling away from the windshield, and skipping across the glass resulting in an uneven pass. If your wipers aren’t performing correctly, you should get them replaced as soon as possible. Falling wiper blades are a safety hazard as they reduce visibility in weather conditions that already limit your field of vision.
