How it’s done:
- The hood is opened and supported as needed. The wipers are put into the park position (the position where the wipers rest when not in use) before removal of the wiper arm. The position is noted by a small grease marker mark on the windshield.
- The old wiper arm is removed from the vehicle.
- The new wiper arm is installed and aligned with the mark on the window. Any marks are removed from the window using glass cleaner.
- The hood is closed as required and the wipers are tested for proper operation.
- The windshield wipers are tested for proper operation with a hose running water on the window.
The windshield wiper arms are responsible for keeping your windshield clear and maintaining your road visibility. If you can’t see the road properly because your wipers aren’t working well, schedule an inspection.
