Winter wiper blades prevent ice and snow from adhering and clogging the wiper action. They're a simple change out.
By the DIY experts of The Family Handyman Magazine:December / January 2008
Regular blades often become clogged with snow and ice. The rubber covering on winter blades prevents that problem.
It's snowing hard and you turn on the wipers.
The blade supports get packed with snow and
the wiper blade either causes streaks or misses
large swaths of your windshield. Winter wiper
blades eliminate that problem. The entire blade is
wrapped in a rubber boot that prevents ice and
snow from sticking or packing. They make for
much better visibility and safer winter driving.
Have the necessary tools for this DIY project lined up before you start—you’ll save time and frustration.
Avoid last-minute shopping trips by having all your materials ready ahead of time. Here's a list.
