Mercedes-Benz Windshield Wiper Blades
The set of Mercedes-Benz Windshield Wiper Blades on the front of your vehicle are what clears the visual path for the driver to navigate their vehicle. This body component consists of both polymer and metal parts so it can remain stiff and flexible at the same time.
The stiffness o f the windshield wiper blades are from metal components so they will remain in place no matter how fast your Mercedes-Benz is moving. The polymer components are the parts that remain flexible and come in direct contact with the windshield clearing the path for the driver to see the road.
The section of the windshield wiper blades that will wear over time is the polymer sections. Due to the stress the UV rays from the sun exert on them along with the temperature variations the windshield wiper blades will encounter when mounted on the front of your Mercedes-Benz, they will dry out and crack. This will expose the glass windshield to the metal parts of the windshield wiper blades. If the unit is turned on, the metal will scratch the windshield along its path of contact with it.
To avoid this costly repair, the replacement of the Mercedes-Benz windshield wiper blades should be on the periodical maintenance schedule by the owner. The timing of this is determined by the amount of exposure to the elements this auto part experiences throughout the year. Routine inspections are also recommended. The most common time for the replacement of the windshield wiper blades is in the early spring. This is just after the harsh winter when the blades are exposed to the highest level of stress drying them out. This will enable the driver of the Mercedes-Benz to have a clear vision of the road ahead of them at all time throughout the year.
