Wipers and Washers

Windshield wipers

Note: Fully defrost the windshield in icy conditions before turning on the windshield wipers.

Note: Make sure the windshield wipers are switched off before entering a car wash.

Note: Clean the windshield and wiper blades if they begin to leave streaks or smears. If that does not resolve the issue, install new wiper blades.

Note: Do not operate the wipers on a dry windshield. This may scratch the glass, damage the wiper blades or cause the wiper motor to burn out.

Always use the windshield washers before wiping a dry windshield.
