Wiper, also known as wiper, water dial, wiper or windshield flat wiper
, is a device used to wipe off the raindrops and dust attached to the windshield of the vehicle to improve the driver's visibility and increase driving safety. Cars almost everywhere have wipers because of legal requirements. Vehicles such as hatchbacks and SUVs also have wipers on the rear windows. In addition to cars, other means of transport are also equipped with wipers, such as trains, trams, etc. Some engineering equipment, such as cranes, are also equipped with wipers.
If the wiper has been used for 1-2 years, it is recommended that you replace it in time. At this time, the wiper rubber strip has begun to age after one or two years of wind and sun exposure.
It is judged that the wipers can wipe off the rainwater on the front windshield, especially when it is light rain, the wipers are blurred after wiping.
Gently lift up the wiper and observe whether the wiper blade has cracks or cracks. If there are cracks or folds, it needs to be replaced.
Check whether the wipers are noisy during operation. If the noise is getting louder and louder, you need to replace them with new ones.
Due to the high frequency of using wipers in the rainy areas in the south, the replacement cycle can be shortened according to local conditions to ensure a clear and clean new vision in rainy weather.
In addition, car owners should be careful not to dry the glass and clean the wipers more often to prolong the service life of the wipers. When you find that the wiper is not clean in the early stage, you can sand it with fine sandpaper. If it is still not clean after sanding, you can replace it at this time.
It should be noted that some car owners like to buy extended wiper blades when replacing wiper blades, thinking that this will have a better scraping effect. In fact, this is wrong. Because if the wiper blade is too long, it will rub against the front windshield and cause abnormal noise, so it is right to buy the size that suits your model.
What are the precautions for car wiper replacement
Although we don't use a lot of wipers at ordinary times, it is inevitable that they will age due to the wind and the sun over a long period of time. At this time, they need to be replaced in time. When replacing the wiper, there are also certain precautions. For example, you must first know which model and length of the wiper of your car. If you don’t know, you can look at the manual of your car, and you can also find it online.
Secondly, it is also necessary to note that the interface of the car wiper is different for some models. Although many models are unified now, some models are still not universal. It should be noted that there are many types of car wiper strips and various functions. When choosing, you can compare more and choose a wiper that is suitable for your model and the right price.
Precautions for the use of car wipers
1. As the name suggests, wiper blades clean the rainwater on the front windshield. It can't be used without rain, and it can't be wiped dry without water. The increased frictional resistance due to lack of water will cause damage to the rubber blade and wiper motor.
2. Even if there is rain, if the rain is not enough to start the wiper blade, it should not be wiped. Be sure to wait until there is enough rain on the glass surface. The word "enough" here does not obstruct the driver's line of sight.
3. It is not advisable to use wiper blades to remove dust on the surface of the windshield. Even if you want to do this, you must spray glass water at the same time, and never dry scraping without water.
4. If there are sturdy things on the windshield, such as the dried feces of birds such as pigeons, you must not use the wiper directly to scrape it hard. Please clean the bird feces by hand first. These hard things can easily cause partial damage to the thin slices of the wiper blade, resulting in the wiper not wiping the rainwater cleanly.
