Ford Windshield Wiper Blades
With the Ford Windshield Wiper Blades operating as they were designed too, a clear visual path can be seen by not only the driver of the vehicle but the passengers as well. Without a set of operational Ford windshield wiper blades in place, the path forward for the vehicle will not always be visible and could be dangerous.
Because the operational status of the windshield wiper blades is so critical to the safe operations of a vehicle, they should be replaced at regular intervals by the owner of the Ford. The reason they have to be periodically replaced is because of the polymer section of the windshield wiper blades. It is the poly section that makes direct contract with the windshield itself. Because the polymer section is soft, contact does not damage either of the components on your vehicle. This durability and ability to conform to the curvature of the windshield is also its weak point. In time it will dry out and crack. When that occurs it has to be replaced on your Ford.
The windshield wiper blades are mounted to the vehicle just below the windshield. This is a place on your vehilce that is exposed to UV radiation from the sun and all of the adverse weather the vehicle encounters each year. This is why on most periodical maintenance schedules for vehicles the replacing of the windshield wiper blades is placed to occur in the spring time. This way a new polymer section can be ready to clear the windshield during the spring rains. It that does not occur, the damage to them over the long cold and dry winter months might damage the polymer sections so much that the metal sections come in contact with the glass windshield and damaging it on your Ford.
