On average your wiper blades have a shelf life of 6 – 12 months depending on their quality and their usage. If you’re wondering whether your wiper blades are at the end of their life, think of the 5 S’s…



1. Streaking

Is there random water marks left on your window after the wiper runs across it?

2. Skipping

Does the wiper blade jump or bounce across the screen, skipping over parts?

3. Squeaking

Is there a sharp squeaking sound when the wiper drags across the window?

4. Separation

Can you see any tears or separation between the rubber blade and the wiper?

5. Smearing

Are the blades leaving bands of water or dirt smudged across the windscreen?


You might notice one or more of these signs with your wipers, if you do it’s a good indication that they need to be replaced. We have new sets in stock from €15 and they can be fitted in minutes.


You wouldn’t drive with your eyes closed, so why would you drive around with wipers that don’t work?
