  • Understand Your Environment:
    The South African climate poses unique challenges to vehicle maintenance, including extreme temperatures, dust, heavy rains, and occasional frost. Be aware of these factors and their impact on your windshield wiper blades.
  • Regular Inspection:
    Check your wiper blades regularly for signs of wear and damage, such as cracks, pitting, or missing rubber. Replace them every six months or sooner if necessary, to maintain optimal performance.
  • Visibility Equals Safety:
    Worn-out wiper blades can compromise visibility, increasing the risk of accidents, especially during adverse weather conditions. Don't wait until it's too late—replace worn wipers promptly to ensure clear visibility on the road.
  • Avoid Common Mistakes:
    Running wipers on dry windshields, allowing them to drag over ice, or not using enough washer fluid can accelerate wiper wear. Practice good habits to prolong the lifespan of your wiper blades.
