If your wipers aren’t doing their job, or they’ve started to make that awful squalling noise blades are prone to as they wear down, it could be time for a change. Your windshield wiper’s size varies depending on the make, model, and vintage of your vehicle, and it’s essential you know exactly which size you need before you try to change them out. Improperly fitted blades can’t do their job, which could be a problem if you’re on the road to Maple Grove and the weather takes a turn. So, what windshield wipers do you need?

What Windshield Wipers Do I Need?

When it comes to wiper blades, size is important. Here’s how to find out what size windshield wipers you need for your vehicle:

  • Check Your Manual: Your vehicle’s manual should tell you what wiper blades size you need for each side and may even recommend a brand. Some vehicles have different size requirements for the driver and passenger sides, so read carefully before replacing your wiper blades.
  • Use a Tool: You can make use of tools online, such as the wiper selector here, or contact our parts department to find out your vehicle’s optimal windshield wipers size.
  • Ask a Tech: If in doubt, speak to someone who knows cars like yours inside and out, such as the certified service professionals at Cornerstone Plymouth. Not only can we help you find the right part for your Minnetonka area vehicle, but thanks to our service specials, we can install them for you often for less than the cost of doing it yourself.
