Rear Wiper Blade
Understanding the Importance and Function of the Rear Windshield Wiper on Vehicles
When it comes to car maintenance, the importance of rear windshield wiper blades is often overlooked. Being able to see clearly through your vehicle’s rear windshield is essential to ensuring the safety of the driver and passengers. In some US states and other countries, vehicle inspection requires a functioning rear wiper blade.
SilBlade exact fit rear windshield wiper blades are designed to follow the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) specifications in form, fit and function. All SilBlade rear wiper blades feature high-quality plastic frames and a premium silicone rubber blade with graphite and PTFE. The graphite and PTFE coating in the silicone rubber wiper squeegee is what makes SilBlade rear wiper blades move smoothly and quietly across the vehicles’ rear windshield.
Like front wiper blades, rear windshield wiper blades need to be regularly maintained to ensure they are working correctly. Over time, the silicone rubber rear wiper blade can become damaged or worn, which can affect its ability to clean the windshield effectively. It is recommended to replace the rear wiper blade every six to twelve months or as soon as any visible signs of damage or wear appear.
