Wipe Your Worries Away With Eurofit Autocentres

The most underappreciated but essential thing on our car? Windscreen wipers.

We never seem to fully appreciate them until there’s torrential rain, dirt, or bugs.

Not being able to see out of your windscreen is not only annoying but can be extremely dangerous.

That’s why it’s so important to keep your wipers in mind when it comes to your car maintenance.

If you’re not sure how to tell if your wipers need replacing, or even how exactly you choose the correct wipers for your car, then don’t panic!

Keep reading to see our handy guide to understanding windscreen wipers, what you need and when you will need them.

Naturally your wipers will deteriorate over time, like most things.

This is because of exposure to the elements, as well as general wear and tear.

If your windscreen wipers are leaving streaks, blank spots, don’t move smoothly, don’t make proper contact with your windscreen, or you can see cracks in the wipers, then I can assure you it’s time to make the change.

The average wipers last between 6-12 months, but we recommend you change them annually.

If your wipers aren’t performing at their best but it’s not their time to pass over to the other side yet, give them a little TLC!

A good wipe with a damp sponge or rag and some dish soap can help dislodge and debris and help the blades make better contact with the windscreen.

If your wipers aren’t effective, it can also result in a MOT failure! Something that nobody wants.

Come down to Eurofit Autocentres today where one of our friendly and qualified technicians will take care of you!

Relax, its repaired.
