Can I replace windshield wipers myself?
Wiper blades are made of rubber, so they naturally wear out after several months of wiping snow, rain and dust from your windshield. You could take your car to the mechanic to have them changed, but it’s just as easy to change them yourself. The fitting process is identical for the vast majority of cars on the road.
How much do new wipers cost?
A standard replacement blade assembly for the front windshield or a rear wiper on a hatchback or SUV typically costs $7-$20 each, or $14-$40 a pair, depending on length, type and brand.
How do I find out the size of my windscreen wipers?
If you don’t have the handbook, the easiest way to measure your wiper blade is to simply pull your wiper arm away from your windscreen and use a tape measure. You can also remove the wiper blade itself and look for any manufacturers marks or information.
