- If the wipers leave smearing on the glass, the wiper blades should be cleaned using a window cleaner solution. If the wiper blades are very dirty (insects etc.), they should be cleaned using a soft sponge or cloth – bad visibility can cause accidents!
- For safety, the wiper blades should be changed once or twice a year.
