Visit Computer Tune & Lube to have your Wiper Blades Replaced
Windshield wiper blades should be changed twice a year! Most people tell us they can’t remember the last time they changed their wipers. If you can’t see where you are driving then that’s a problem and we don’t realize we need new wipers until it’s raining!
The cold weather makes the wiper brittle and the hot sun makes the wiper blade dry. That’s why twice a year a replacement is suggested. If you buy wiper blades at Computer Tune & Lube we will install them for you as part of the service. Some wiper blades have a dot on them that will be black when they are new and when they require changing it will turn yellow. I think this is a great idea as long as you know what the dot is for...
When your wiper blades get torn it is usually self inflicted. Especially with the cold weather we've been having in Connecticut. What happens is we use our wipers when it is snowing and we get home and just shut our car off and don’t turn the wipers off? We get up the next morning and start our car and the wipers are frozen to the windshield but they are still turned on! This is how the wiper blades get ripped or it can also be caused by our over exuberant windshield scraping.
A tip in the winter time, if you know there is going to be a storm is to pop up the wiper blades. You can do this on all vehicles but you can do it on many of them. It will make it a lot easier to clean your windshield in the morning.

Reasonable, friendly people. nice small shop. A short wait wasn't too bad, Wendy's next door if you want to eat or get a beverage while you wait. This is where I am going for emissions testing from now on, and if there is ever a car repair I can't do this shop will be the first place I try.”- Ronald S., Middletown, CT
