I Can See Clearly Now: Wiper Blade Replacement in FORT WORTH

Posted October 2, 2022 7:48 AM



About 90% of our driving decisions in the FORT WORTH area are based solely on what we see. So having a good pair of windshield wipers is extremely important.

Most FORT WORTH drivers have experienced the frustration and fear of not being able to see clearly during a storm, or when our vehicle windshield is just dirty. In fact, it's estimated that 46,000,000 drivers across the nation are driving with wipers that can't adequately clear their windshield in a storm.

It seems like our wiper blades are always at their worst when we need them the most. If that sounds like you, you've got plenty of company in the FORT WORTH area. 78% of drivers only change their wiper blades after the blades function so poorly that they become a safety hazard.

FORT WORTH drivers need to change their thinking. Instead of blades being something to replace when they fail, we need to consider wiper blades as vehicle safety component. Then we'll stay ahead of the storm.

FORT WORTH vehicle owners really ought to replace wiper blades twice a year; in the spring and the fall. If you live in the colder parts of TX, you may even want to get special winter blades in the fall.

Winter blades are made to resist freezing. Speaking of winter and freezing FORT WORTH conditions, if your vehicle has been sitting for a long time and the windshield becomes frozen, don't use your wipers to clear off snow and ice. That can shred your blades and may even damage the wiper motor.

Your wiper blades live outside in the freezing cold and blistering sun. Over time, they become hard and brittle, and then tear. They also lose their flexibility and just don't clear the vehicle windshield effectively. Worn wiper blades aren't just a safety hazard for FORT WORTH drivers; they can also scratch their windshield. That may require replacing the entire vehicle windshield – that's the consequence for neglecting such a small part.

Westmoreland Transmissions recommends FORT WORTH drivers replace worn blades right away. We can provide you with a quality replacement blade. At Westmoreland Transmissions, they cost about the same as they would at the store – but installation is included.

Of course you also need washer fluid to help your blades do their work. Even though Westmoreland Transmissions will top off the washer fluid with a full service oil change, it is a good idea to have some extra fluid at home. Take it with you if you're heading out on a road trip.

Always use windshield washer fluid. Plain water, even that fancy French bottled water, just doesn't cut it. It can freeze in the fluid reservoir or on the windshield itself, making things worse. Besides, water won't clean your windows as well.

So follow these tips to keep your windshield clear and your eyes on the road.

Testimonials

, 11/17/2022
I am really skeptical with mechanics, I usually am the one to work on my car when something goes wrong, however, this time it was the transmission. I was researching about transmission shops I came across Westmoreland Transmissions. They are family owned and have amazing costumer service. Bob was very honest with me and gave me great options. His diagnostic fee is REALLY reasonable. And the price for the repair was also fair. I am very glad I chose to do business with Westmoreland Transmissions.
