When you think of vehicle safety, you don’t typically think of your windshield wiper replacement. Actually, your windshield wipers are one of the most important safety features. Just think of yourself driving down the Placentia streets in an April shower, you reach to turn on your windshield wipers, and they don’t work! Instantly, your vision is obstructed, and you can’t see where you are going. Impaired vision, in fact, leads to 90% of all accidents.

Winter can take a toll on your vehicle, windshield wipers included. Your vehicle has to work extra hard to keep up with the chilly and wet weather. During the colder weather, your windshield wipers can become hardened and brittle. The blades won’t perform properly, affecting your line of sight on the road. They often will leave behind streaks. Before we are dealing with the onslaught of April showers, we recommend bringing your vehicle to Yorba Linda Auto Service for a windshield wiper replacement to ensure your windshield stays clear and clean.

A damaged or worn windshield wiper can also damage your windshield, leaving behind dirt, grime, or any other debris. This debris can scratch or scrape against your windshield, if not taken care of. If you see any dirt trapped beneath your windshield wiper, you can easily clean them. If your windshield wipers are damaged or worn, they should be replaced as soon as possible to ensure your vision goes unaffected.

In light of the coronavirus outbreak, we want to let you know that for your convenience, we now offer touchless drop-off and pick-up service. We encourage you to ask one of our service advisors for more details.
