Bent Wiper Blades

It’s winter up here in New York, and my particular area is statistically one of the snowiest in the country. This year hasn’t been that winterlike, but we’ve had some recent cold and heavy snow.

With snow and ice comes broken and torn wiper blades. These two came off one of my family’s cars. When wipers get frozen to the window and you don’t scrape the ice off first, when you try to run them you can bent the blades, or even burn out your wiper motor or blow the fuse. It can also happen if you just don’t brush the snow off and force your wipers to try to move a couple inches of snow. I always hate seeing that because I know it’s not good for the wiper system.
