When should you change your Kia Forte Wiper Blades?

If you have this question on your mind, you are like so many other vehicle owners. By design, wiper blades were not meant to last a lifetime. You should at least change them twice every year depending on how much work they do and your location.

In some cases, you may need to change your wiper blades earlier than you should. Several factors result in this. A few of them include:

  • The action of ultraviolet light and sun rays on the wiper blades.
  • Air pollution and airborne debris such as mud and sand.
  • Rubber-deteriorating oil and car waxes.
  • Moisture such as acid rain and saltwater.

All of these and more result in several problems that may require you to change your wiper blades. The question that begs an answer is, “when should you change your wiper blades?” Below are a few scenarios that will require you to change the blades as quickly as possible.

Streaking

After a while of using your wiper blades, you will notice that they will begin to create streaks on your windshield. Such streaks affect your visibility, especially when driving in the rain or snow. Before long, the streaks will begin to create permanent marks on your windshield.

Once you notice that your wiper blades are making streaks on your windshield, it means they are worn. It is time to change them before they cause you more damage than you expect.

Squeaking and chattering sounds

Wiper blades make these sounds when they are worn or when the wiper arm is bent. The bottom line is that they wouldn’t clean your windshield as well as they should. Most times, the sounds come from the metal part of the blade scratching the windshield.

Check the rubber part of the blade for damage. If it is damaged, quickly change it to avoid damage to your windshield. However, if it is the wiper arm that is bent, use a pair of pliers to restore it.

Smearing

In some cases, you notice that water smears across the windshield when the wipers are working. This is mostly a result of worn-out wiper blades. Smearing of water or snowflakes across your windshield will impair your visibility and could lead to accidents.

There are two solutions to this problem. If the blades aren’t completely worn out, you can sandpaper them. A second and more reliable solution is to replace the blades with new ones.
