Dodge Windshield Wiper Blades
When the view through the windshield is clear in inclement weather conditions, the Dodge windshield wiper blades are performing their duties as they were designed to. This is their only reason for being placed on a vehicle to clear the glass windshield or moisture and debris.
The construction of the windshield wiper blades is of both metal and polymer components. The metal is there so it will retain its shape and provide this body component with structure. The polymer section of the windshield wiper blades is there to make direct contact with the glass so it can be cleared of debris without damage occurring to either component when they move on your Dodge.
The reason for the need to replace the Dodge windshield wiper blades is because the polymer section of them will dry out and become hard over time being exposed to the elements. This prevents the polymer section of the windshield wiper blades from conforming to the curvature of the windshield so it will no longer have direct contact with the surface. This is when the streaks are left by old and worn out blades as they cross the windshield.
The greatest level of damage to the wiper blades is during the winter months when the moisture in the air is low and the cold temperatures harden the polymer sections. This is why it is advisable to place them on the periodic maintenance schedule of your Dodge for the replacement of the windshield wiper blades in the spring time. It will make it possible for them to provide a clear view through the windshield of your Dodge for the longest period of time before the wiper blades become worn again and be in need of replacement.
