How Often Should You Replace Old Windshield Wiper Blades?
Generally speaking, the rule of thumb is that old wiper blades should be replaced every six to twelve months. However, depending on where you live or how often you drive, they may need to be replaced sooner. The type of Hyundai windshield wipers your vehicle uses may also alter the replacement frequency as beam wiper blades generally outlast conventional ones. One trick to keep track of when you need to replace your old wiper blades is to get them checked every time you get an oil change.
How to Replace Old Windshield Wiper Blades
Before you replace your old wiper blades, you’ll need three things: your new wiper blades, glass cleaner, and a paper towel or microfiber cloth. Then simply follow these three easy steps to replacing your vehicle’s wiper blades:
- Remove the Old Blades: First pull up on the clip located on top of the wiper or press down on a small tab on the underside of the wiper. The old blades should then slide right off. If you need more assistance, your car manual or the packaging on your new blades may provide more instruction.
- Attach the New Blades: Begin by sliding the new slides on in the opposite way the old blades came off. You should hear a click when the tabbed blade locks into place. Some blades may have a clip, so be sure to close the clip in order to lock the blade in place if so. Then, simply rest the wiper carefully against the windshield.
- Test the New Blades: After you’ve finished installing the new blades, it’s a good idea to run the new wipers a few times. This will ensure they fight properly, are working well, and are secure against the wiper arm. At this point, you can also clean your vehicle’s glass to get the most out of changing your wiper blades.
