When to Change Wiper Blades for My Toyota?

You must replace Toyota wiper blades at one point or another. Toyota recommends inspecting your wiper blades after every 5000-miles. Now, this leads us to the next question; What are the signs to look for when your windshield wipers need to be replaced? Below are some of the signs to watch out for.

1. Streaking : This happens when worn blades warp from exposure to elements like automotive chemicals, road tar, and tree sap. When this happens, the rubber hardens or cracks and leaves streaks on your windshield.

2. Squeaking and Chatter : This is a result of aging. As your wiper blade ages, the rubber loses and stiffens. A loose or stiff wiper blade produces a squeaking sound when running through the windshield.

3. Splitting Rubber : The rubber of your wiper blades splits on extended exposure to the harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun.

4. Scooting : This is one of the results of corrosion of your wiper blades. When this happens, the blades skip across the windshield.
