Wiper Blades Buyers Guide

Having a good, clear windscreen is vital for safe driving.

The British weather can be pretty unpredictable and your wiper blades have to cope with rain, sleet, hail stones and snow, not to mention the natural build-up of grime.

Always make sure your wiper blades are in top condition for ultimate visibility and peace of mind.

When should you get new wiper blades?

Your wiper blades have to cope with the elements, so we recommend that you change them every 12 months. But it's worth keeping your eye out for any problems in the meantime. You'll need new blades if you notice:

  • juddering on the screen or excessive noise.
  • your blades are worn or torn when you run your finger down them.
  • your blades leave streaks and/or unwiped areas on the windscreen.
