Worn wiper blades often increase the chances of accidents in bad weather as they impair visibility. The sun’s UV rays damage your wiper blades, causing them to become stiff and brittle. Squeaking or shrieking windshield wiper blades usually indicate that your VW needs new wiper blades. When you bring your car in for your regular maintenance, our company-trained mechanics will inspect your wiper blades for broken frames, metal corrosion, and any visible cracks on the rubber area. Then replace the wiper blades if necessary.
Our certified technicians recommend that you schedule regular windshield wiper replacement after every six months or when you hit the 10,000 mile mark. Alternatively, you could have your wiper blades replaced when you notice a difference in visibility. Check your wipers regularly and look out for signs of wear and tear. Your wipers may need replacement if they leave streaks on the windshield. In this case, you’ll notice that bands of water remain after each wipe. Faulty wiper blades may also skip certain spots and produce the dreaded squeaking noise. Our technicians can inform you about your wiper’s condition to help you make an informed decision.

These factory-original blades often fit perfectly on your VW’s windshield, wiping off the maximum area. Our team uses OEM wiper blades that offer long-lasting performance and superior wiping quality.

UV rays and heat from sunshine degrades your wiper blades’ rubber and plastic components. Over time, you’ll notice that the blades are brittle and can easily crack. Park your VW in the shade to extend your wiper blades’ lifespan. It is also essential to keep the contact points between your windshield and wiper blades clean. Use the wiper fluid to remove particulate matter that may build up on your blades. If you live in an area that snows, then learn to de-ice your windshield before wiping. Use your car’s defroster and a widow scraper to clear the ice. This habit helps to prevent friction on your windshield while extending your wiper’s lifespan. Remember to lift your wipers when parking your car to avoid frozen wiper blades.
