How to replace your wiper blades?

Wiper blades are made out of thin rubber and can easily get worn out, especially in areas with more snow and rainfall. Regularly replaced wiper blades can undeniably increase every driver’s safety. The following tips will help you replace worn out wiper blades:

•    Determine the type of wiper blades that will fit your vehicle and measure the size of the wiper blade to be changed.
•    Lift the metal arm away from the windshield. Use caution as the metal arm could slip back and crack the windshield. You can also protect the windshield with a piece of cloth.
•    Press a small stopper holding the blade to separate the blade from the wiper arm. Insert a new blade and attach it tightly onto the metal arm. Gently press the wiper back onto the windshield.
