Q & A

When should I change my wiper blades?

It is recommended to change your wiper blades every six to twelve months, however weather, seasonal and environmental conditions may require longer or shorter replacement intervals.

Why should I install QEEP wiper blades?

How do I know when my wipers need to be replaced?

Check your wiper blades for these signs of wear

Cracked Rubber

Look for splits and slashes, evidence of a hard wiper life.

Torn Rubber

Element has pulled away from its metal support, slaps windshield on each wiping pass

Abrasion Worn Rubber

Worn down, ragged edges from winter conditions or infrequent rubber element refilling.

Park Set Rubber

Hardened rubber element caused by direct sunlight and extreme temperature changes when wipers are idle. Rubber with little or no flexibility causes chatter and skips across windshield.

Contaminated Rubber

Usually caused by road film or chemicals adhering to rubber refill surface.

Improperly Installed Refill

Refill too short or not properly installed loses its effectiveness and may result in a scratched windshield.

Damaged Superstructure

Bent arm, blade or refill is a dead giveaway, caused by ice scrapers and car wash equipment.

Even though one of my wiper blades is more worn than the other – should I replace both of my wiper blades?

Yes. QEEP always recommends that you replace wiper blades in pairs. This will help to ensure you have the clearest windshield and safest view when driving. Also, all wiper blades are not created equal, that's why we recommend that both wiper blades be the same type and from the same manufacturer.

Is there anything I can do to make my wiper blades last longer?

Clean your windshield every time you fill up your gas tank. Wipe off the rubber element with a damp paper towel to clear away any dirt or debris. Use an ice scraper or defroster, not your wiper blades, to de-ice your windshield. To prevent wiper blades from sticking to the windshield and ice build up during the winter, pull them away from your windshield.
