Windshield wiper blade replacement is a cinch for our BMW of Fairfax service team. Knowing when and how to replace your wiper blades is part of our job. However, we think it's good for you to know what we look for when making this determination.

Wiper Blade Integrity

Usage during inclement weather and general exposure to the elements can wear wiper blades down. Oils from car wax, environmental debris, moisture, ultraviolet light and high heat/cold can make wiper blades brittle, hard or too eroded to function properly. When wiper blades degrade, they can't preserve the necessary windshield visibility that's so vital to year-round driver safety.

Recommended Service Interval

Most experts agree that you should replace your windshield wiper blades every six months or at least once each year. Between these intervals, wiper blade replacement is also advisable if your windshield wiper blades begin to streak, skip, squeak or chatter.
