Check the condition of the wiper blades; if they are cracked or show any signs of deterioration, or if the glass swept area is smeared, renew them. For maximum clarity of vision, wiper blades should be renewed annually, as a matter of course.
To remove a windscreen wiper blade, pull the arm fully away from the screen until it locks. Swivel the blade through 90º, then slide the blade away from the windscreen and off the arm.
Where applicable, don’t forget to check the tailgate wiper blade as well. To remove the blade, lift it off the glass and unclip it from the end of the arm.
