Acura Windshield Wiper Blades
The ability to see clearly by a driver in the pouring rain is made possible with operational Acura Windshield Wiper Blades. These are an often forgotten component until they are needed in inclement weather situations.
The windshield wiper blades are constructed of both metal and polymer pieces, of which the polymer will wear out over time. This occurs because the polymer dries out from being exposed to the sun and its ultra violet rays that constantly bombard the vehicle when it is out on the road or parked.
If worn Acura windshield wiper blades are not replaced before they totally break down, not only will the driver find it very difficult to see when it rains, but the metal components of the wipers could come in contact with the glass windshield scratching it. Once this occurs, nothing but replacing the windshield will repair the damage of the scratches on your Acura.
If you are not sure of the condition of your wiper blades, they can be tested with the use of the wash fluid that is a standard feature on your Acura. By looking for streaks and for points on the glass that the windshield wiper blades are not making complete contact with is a positive indication they should be replaced.
Because the windshield wiper blades are partially made of polymer, when just one of them is worn out and is in need of being replaced on your Acura, both of them should be replaced. The logic behind this is that both of the windshield wiper blades have been exposed to the same conditions and time period so the wear on both will be close to the same level of wear. Luckily these auto parts are purchased in pairs.
