Keep Your Windshield Clear — ACA Automotive
You likely don't give your windshield wipers much thought until it's raining, but they obviously play a vital role in driving safety. When your wipers don't work properly, your visibility can become impaired, increasing the likelihood that you could get in an accident. That's why it's a good idea to get your windshield wipers maintained and replaced on a regular basis. ACA Automotive is based in Long Beach, California, so the next time you bring your car into our AAA-approved auto repair shop for a tune-up or oil change, make sure your wipers get checked out as well.
The Wiper System
The windshield wiper system is made up of three components: the motor, the blades, and the wiper fluid reservoir. Wiper failure could be the result of wiring problems, a blown fuse, or a bad motor. If your wipers suddenly stop working, the problem could be as simple as replacing the fuse, or you may need professional repairs. The wiper blades are like squeegees, with the arm dragging a rubber blade across the glass. When the blade is new and free of nicks and cracks, the blades wipe the water away without leaving streaks. As the wiper blades age, nicks and cracks form and road grime builds up on the edges, which causes streaks to form on your windshield. And as the system ages, the wiper fluid nozzles can become corroded or warped, decreasing the fluid supply's functionality.
Book Your Service
It is certainly possible to change your wiper blades and replace the fluid yourself, but if you have it done by a professional during a regularly scheduled maintenance visit, you can be sure that the repairs will be done correctly.
