How to Check Your Windshield Wipers in Roswell, Georgia


Windshield wipers are a vital element of your vehicle’s safety system to assist drivers with visibility. Honda Carland, your local Roswell, Georgia Honda dealership, wants to help our customers identify when it is time to replace your wiper blades. If windshield wiper blades are not functioning correctly, road visibility may become difficult in more hazardous conditions. Old or faulty blades can be ineffective and even smear your windshield, potentially creating issues with visibility. To change your wiper blades yourself, check out the following steps:


  1. Measure your wiper blade length or check your car’s owner’s manual for the correct blade size

  2. To remove the old wiper, lift the arm away from the windshield and depress the small tab on the underside of the wiper where it meets the wiper arm. When the tab is depressed, slide the wiper blade off the arm by pulling downward

  3. When attaching the new wiper blades, pull the wiper blade tight on to the arm. You’ll hear a clicking sound, when it locks into place. Now, simply lower te arm slowly back onto the windshield and repeat this process on the other wiper arm.

  4. Test the wipers after installation. It is better to do this now, at a convenient moment, rather than during the middle of inclement weather.
