Switching the windshield wipers on/ off

Wiper blades are components that are subject to wear and tear. Replace the wiper blades twice a year, preferably in the spring and fall.

Otherwise the windows will not be wiped properly. As a result, you may not be able to observe surrounding traffic conditions and could cause an accident.

Do not operate the windshield wipers when the windshield is dry, as this could damage the wiper blades. Moreover, dust that has collected on the windshield can scratch the glass if wiping takes place when the windshield is dry.

If the windshield wipers leave smears on the windshield after the vehicle has been washed in an automatic car wash, wax or other residues may be the reason for this.

Clean the windshield using washer fluid after washing the vehicle in an automatic car wash.
