Volkswagen Windshield Wiper Blades
The ability to clear the forward view for a driver is the responsibility of the Volkswagen Windshield Wiper Blades. These simple yet very important components on your vehicle can help the driver to avoid an unwanted accident because an obstacle was not noticed.
The Volkswagen windshield wiper blades have the ability to follow the contour of the windshield because of the polymer squeegee that makes direct contact with it. This polymer is very soft and flexible which is held in place by metal structural sections of the windshield wiper blades. This is how it can perform this necessary duty of clearing the windshield even at high speeds and not lose their shape while mounted on your Volkswagen.
Since the windshield wiper blades are mounted on the lower front section of the windshield, they are constantly exposed to the elements that bombard your Volkswagen. The most damaging of these elements include the UV rays of the sun and the freezing temperatures experienced by your vehicle in the winter months. Both of these environmental conditions dry the polymer sections of the windshield wiper blades out causing them to fail in time.
When the polymer fails, it will become cracked and pieces of it will begin to fall from where it was mounted too on your windshield wiper blades. If this occurs when the wipers are activated on your Volkswagen, the metal sections of the wipers can come in contact with the glass windshield. When metal crosses over glass, it scratches it. This will cause the repair bill for seeing clearing down the road to increase. To help prevent his form occurring, many owner replace their wiper blades in the spring on an annual basis.
