Windshield wipers are a device used to remove rain, snow, ice, or debris from a vehicle’s windshield.
Windshield wipers typically consist of a metal frame that supports a rubber blade. The blade is attached to the frame via a metal arm, and the frame is mounted on the vehicle’s windshield. When the wiper is turned on, the arm moves the blade back and forth across the windshield, clearing away any obstructions. Windshield wipers are an important safety feature of any vehicle, and they play a vital role in keeping the driver’s vision clear.
Wipers are made of rubber, so they are susceptible to damage from the sun and other elements. Moreover, they are constantly exposed to debris, dust, and dirt, which can also lead to wear and tear. In general, it is important to inspect your wipers on a regular basis and replace them when they start to show signs of wear.
