How to Change Your Windshield Wipers

windshield wipers

Windshield wipers are designed to last six to twelve months, but the rubber blades can wear out sooner if they’re constantly exposed to snow, ice, rain, salt, and extreme temperatures. If you find that your windshield wipers are no longer doing their job on drives around Minneapolis, check them for signs of wear to make sure that is the issue, then schedule an appointment at our service center to get them replaced. Order OEM windshield wipers through our parts department and have them professionally installed at our service center.

How to Clean Windshield Wipers?

Pull-up your windshield wiper blades and run your finger across it. If you feel dirt and debris, wash it off and see if that fixes the problem. If you notice that pieces of the blades are missing then you should get them replaced. 


How Much Does it Cost to Get Your Windshield Wipers Replaced?

Windshield wipers are inexpensive to replace and our parts specials make getting your hands on an OEM part even more cost-effective. How to change your windshield wipers? You can choose to install your new windshield wipers yourself or have them shipped to our service center for professional installation. 

If you choose to go the DIY method:

  1. Position your windshield wipers so they’re upright. 
  2. Pull them carefully away from the windshield. 
  3. Read the instructions on your windshield wiper’s packaging for how to remove them. You’ll either have to depress a tab to pull it off or slide it off with the wiper arm. 
  4. Discard the old wiper blades.
  5. Clean your windshield thoroughly to prevent dust and dirt from getting on your new windshield wipers. 
  6. Install the new windshield wipers by doing the reverse of steps two and three.
  7. Replace the blade on the other side.
  8. Carefully return your windshield wipers back in their regular position.

The whole process shouldn’t take more than a couple of minutes. If you’d rather have them installed professionally and avoid the hassle of doing it yourself, a member of our service team is happy to do so.
