Suppose your car is in perfect condition, but you develop a little crack in a windshield wiper. You probably wouldn’t want to take such a small problem to your Seattle body shop, would you?
Fortunately, replacing the wiper by yourself is a surprisingly easy task for even the least gear-headed drivers among us. Just take a look at your wipers; though different makes have different mechanisms, it should be fairly simple to determine how to remove the wiper from the arm that holds it against your windshield. Simply pull this arm away from the windshield, detach the old wiper, and replace it with a new one.
The important trick to remember is that you’ll need to be sure to buy the right kind of wiper for your car. Stores sometimes will have a machine or booklet that lets you know which wipers you need for your car depending on the year, model, maker, etc. Wipers come in different sizes, so you’ll want to identify your wiper’s size or even bring it with you to the store. Also, the wipers on a single car are often different sizes, so don’t make the mistake of getting a matching pair. If you have trouble, you can always bring it to our Seattle body shop for a little assistance.
