In winter, when it rains heavily, car wipers play a vital role. It can scrape off raindrops from windshield in time and provide a clear driving vision. But when many car owners use windshield wiper in winter, they find that wiper will squeak, what is the reason for this?
The creaking of wipers in winter is mainly caused by these reasons. The first reason is problem of wiper himself. Wipers are rubber products that age and harden under influence of wind and sun, especially in winter at low temperatures. The easiest and most effective way in this case is to replace wiper blade with a new one so that wiper does not creak when wiping water.
In addition to aging problem of windshield wiper itself, squeaking sound of windshield wiper in winter can also be caused by foreign objects on windshield. When wiper encounters these foreign objects during operation, it will rub against windshield and make a squeaking sound, so in normal use of car, it is necessary to clean foreign objects on windshield in time. In addition, damage to wiper motor will also cause wiper to squeak. At this time, we should go to auto repair shop to check it as soon as possible and replace it with a new motor if necessary.
After talking about problem of squeaking wipers in winter, editor will tell you about problem that wipers are not clean. There are many reasons why wiper cannot wipe cleanly, firstly, first reason is that windshield of car is already dirty. Since many car owners at home do not have underground parking, they often park their cars on street, as reptiles, bird droppings and fine sand stick to windshield, making wipers hard to wipe down. At this time, we only need to clean windshield, but when cleaning windshield, it is best to clean rubber strips. Otherwise, dirt remaining on wiper rubber will easily scratch glass again.
Secondly, if wiper blade spring is damaged, car wiper will also be dirty. There is a spring in link between wiper arm and car body, this spring will weaken after a long time of use, resulting in uneven distribution of wiper arm pressure, and wiper cannot cleanly scrape. In this case, we need to go to 4S store for inspection and service, and we cannot do it ourselves.
A car windshield wiper is very fragile. If not cared for properly, it is prone to problems such as abnormal noise and dirty scratching. Therefore, when you use windshield wiper normally, you should pay attention to maintenance of windshield wiper. Not only to avoid direct sunlight on wiper, but also to ensure that a glass of water is sufficient before using wiper so that wiper does not stay dry for a long time. If car must be left outdoors for long periods of time in winter, it is best to raise wiper arm to prevent wiper blade from freezing to glass surface.
Okay, today's explanation of knowledge about car wipers has come to an end. Although wiper is just a small accessory, everyone should take good care of it.
