I Can See Clearly Now Wiper Blade Replacement In Minneapolis

About 90% of our driving decisions in Minneapolis are based solely on what we see. So having a good pair of windshield wipers is extremely essential.

Most Minneapolis motorists have experienced the frustration and fear of not being able to see clearly during a storm, or when our sedan windshield is just dirty. In fact, it’s estimated that 46,000,000 car owners across the nation are driving with wipers that can’t adequately clear their windshield in a storm.

It seems like our wiper blades are always at their worst when we Minneapolis auto owners need them the most. If that sounds like you, you’ve got plenty of company in the Minneapolis area. 78% of drivers only change their wiper blades after the blades function so poorly that they become a safety hazard.

Minneapolis motorists need to change their thinking. Instead of blades being something to replace when they fail, we need to consider wiper blades as an important sedan safety component. Then we’ll stay ahead of the storm.

Minneapolis motorists really ought to replace wiper blades twice a year; in the spring and the fall. If you live in the colder parts of MN, you may even want to get special winter blades in the fall.

Winter blades are made to resist freezing. Speaking of winter and freezing Minneapolis conditions, if your sedan has been sitting for a long time and the windshield becomes frozen, don’t use your wipers to clear off snow and ice. That can shred your blades and may even damage the wiper motor.

Your wiper blades live outside in the freezing cold and blistering Minneapolis sun. Over time, they become hard and brittle, and then tear. They also lose their flexibility and just don’t clear the sedan windshield effectively. Worn wiper blades aren’t just a safety hazard for Minneapolis auto owners; they can also scratch their windshield. That may require replacing the entire sedan windshield – that’s an expensive consequence for neglecting such a small part.

AutoNetTV and Wagamon Brothers recommend Minneapolis drivers replace worn blades right away. Your Minneapolis service center can provide you with a quality replacement blade. At Wagamon Brothers, they cost about the same as they would at the store – but installation is included.

Of course you also need washer fluid to help your blades do their essential work. Even though Wagamon Brothers will top off the washer fluid with a full service oil change, it is a good idea to have some extra fluid at home. Bring it with you if you’re heading out on a road trip.

Always use windshield washer fluid. Plain water, even that fancy French bottled water, just doesn’t cut it. It can freeze in the fluid reservoir or on the windshield itself, making things worse. Besides, water won’t clean your windows as well.

So follow these tips to keep your windshield clear and your eye on the road.
