And one of the most common questions asked is, How long do windshield wipers last?
Let's find out the answer!!!
It typically sees a life span of one to two years, it all depends on the quality of the windshield wipers we are using & of course , how often we use it , once again HOW OFTEN WE USE IT? It's definitely something I can't stress enough.
We have varied seasons such as summer time, winter time and mainly rainy times that determine the life expectancy of the wiper itself. We probably ask ourselves, `` CAN I GET BEST WIPER BLADE IN THE MARKET? Answer is YES, sure we can, our suggestion would be VALEO WIPER BLADES”.

Wiper blades are a key visibility tool for drivers, while checking a car, it is compulsory & mandatory to look at them.
There are 4 common wiping defaults that can easily be detected & solved.
- Water Haze
- Judder & Noise
- Unwiped zones
1. Stripes: Stripes appear on the windshield when the rubber lips are damaged or fractured, low & high temperature, ice or dirt can be the root cause .We need to change the wiper blade to solve the problem.
2. Water Haze : The water haze appears on the wind screen when the rubber lip remains flipped on one side & does not reverse. The root cause is that rubber stiffen with the time & various temperatures. In this case, we need to change the wiper blades to solve the problem.
3. Judder & Noise : If the wipers make judder & noise when using the windscreen washer it is because rubber is hardened by aging or because of varying temperature , The rubber lips remain recumbent because of high pressure on the blade , due to intensive use of wipers, the play at the connector may increase. In this case we need to change the wiper to solve this problem.
4.Unwiped Zones : If some areas of the windscreen are not wiped , it's because of the wind lift on the wiper at high vehicle speed, the pressure distribution under the wiper blade is poor because the arm spring has lost part of its tension , we can check the tip force or change the wiper blade to solve this problem.
A GOOD WIPE OF THE WINDSHIELD is
➢ Without Water Haze
➣ Un-stripped Wiping
➣ Clear Visibility
➣ Safety & Security
The main important factor is the size of the wiper blade itself , it is measured in inches normally. So depending on the model we have , that's gonna determine which size we need.
There are a couple of ways to determine the sizes , one is to use the owner manual or visit the nearest Valeo retailer or dealer. Once you get the Valeo wipers with defined size for the car, next would be getting it installed .
Pretty easy & not all cars have the same type of wipers.
