Wiper arms can suffer from wear and tear, so if you notice your wiper arm not operating as it should, make sure to replace it! The wiper motor helps move the windscreen wipers back and forth. Wipers are essential to car safety, so if any signs of degradation start to show it's probably worth getting the motor looked at or replaced.

Lots of different elements make up your cars exhaust system. If you're unfortunate enough to have any sections of your exhaust fail (e.g. silencer), we stock a wide range of exhaust parts online at Halfords to get you on your way.
The main job of exhaust gaskets is to help create a seal at the joints in your exhaust system. If your exhaust gasket is faulty, you're probably experiencing loss of engine compression (power), or overheating. Even though an exhaust clamp might seem like a small accessory to your whole exhaust system, it helps to keep an eye on them. A faulty exhaust clamp can prevent a proper flow of exhaust fumes, which can sometimes lead to a build-up of fumes in the car itself.
Although your exhaust is an integral part of your car and incredibly important, there are plenty of other parts to it that are just as vital. If you have a worn exhaust clamp, or rusty screw holding your exhaust on, it's probably time to take a look at our range of exhaust accessories.
