Windshield Wiper Replacement in Tampa, FL, 101

In this section, we'll cover some of the most common symptoms that indicate it's time for a windshield wiper replacement. Don't want to wait until you run into a squall line on I-75? Pro-tip: drive through a carwash or even use your windshield wiper wash function to see how your blades behave. If you experience any of the following, you're definitely a candidate for a windshield wiper replacement:

  • Screech & Scratch: If you actually hear something like nails on a chalkboard, STOP. Don't use your windshield wipers until you put new windshield wipers on. That awful sound you hear is metal on glass, and you don't want to damage your windshield.

  • Hop, Skip, & Jump: If your wipers are bouncing their way across your windshield, this could mean that the rubber is worn and dry rotted. Without a smooth edge, your wipers will bounce around without doing anything other than worsening visibility.

  • The Floppy Dangly: If you see rubber dangling in the wake of moving wiper arms, you've got inferior water dispersion on top of the potential to scratch your glass. This definitely suggests that it's time for a windshield wiper blade replacement.

Windshield wiper replacement takes you or one of our technicians only a few minutes. They are a fraction of the cost of replacing your windshield. They are a smart investment in insurance against possible accidents or injuries. Don't get caught in the rain! Or if you do, at least be prepared!
