For your safety, it is recommended that you change the complete windscreen wiper blades at least once a year. Poor performing wiper blades affect the overall visibility and can be dangerous. However, if the car windscreen has any of the following issues, please contact us at Botley Road Motors and to get your wipers checked out. This is normally a while you wait service, subject to the workshop commitments. Ineffective windscreen wipers blades can result in a MOT test failure. Please check them and replace damaged wipers before having a test, for more information regarding MOT testing.
