- Streaking water
- Leave a milky film when wiping
- Any other reason it seems your wipers aren't performing well
Step 1: Buy Your Blades
Go to your nearest auto body shop (or walmart) and give them your car's info. They will be able to look it up and tell you your options. There will many options for blades ranging from $5 to $25 each (you'll usually need to buy a different blade for each side). A good rule of thumb is to not buy the cheapest, or the most expensive ones. It's usually a good idea to replace both blades at once, if one has gone bad, the other can't be much better.
Step 2: Remove the Old Ones
*If your tab appears broken, you can use a key to pop out the remaining nub.
Step 3: Attach the New Ones
Hopefully you'll notice a big difference in their performance. I know I did.
You can throw away the old wipers, or reuse them. I personally have one in my bathroom for wiping off my mirror after showers, when it's fogged up. You can also make a wind chime, a tension wrench, or something of your own creation.
