Wiper Blades and Headlight Services
Import Auto can help improve your visibility when driving by inspecting your wiper blades and lights. It is important to have your vehicle inspected on a regular basis. Especially with wiper blades and headlights as they protect you and others on the road. No matter the weather, these components need to function well so you can be safe on the roadways.
Another aspect of your vehicle that must be cared for and inspected on a regular basis is the windshield wiper blades. When the wipers of your vehicle do not work properly, the glass of your vehicle can be affected, and even scratched. Wipers that do not work also cause issues with driving when the rain falls. Drivers can have trouble navigating the highways when heavy rains fall and the wipers do not remove the water as they should. Having your wipers checked on a regular basis and replaced when needed will ensure your safety when driving in rain or snow.
Frequently Asked Questions About Your Vehicle
How long will my wipers last?
Wiper blades have a lifespan of about one year. If you live in a harsh environment, your blades may need to be replaced every six months.
Will I spend more to install LED headlights instead of standard bulbs?
LED lighting is used in many modern taillights and headlights and uses HID, or High-Intensity Discharge, bulbs. Both options cost more but will last as much as 10 to 15 times longer than the incandescent bulbs.
Why should wipers be left up before an ice or snow storm?
This keeps the wipers from freezing to the windshield.
What is this dark spot on the road, even though my headlights work?
Headlight aiming is needed to ensure the lights provide even lighting. Special equipment can be used to ensure headlights are aimed correctly for quality driving.
With so many wiper blade types available, how do I know which one to buy?
You can check the application guide to see which type will work for your vehicle. You can also consult a vehicle technician to ensure the right wiper blades are installed on your vehicle.
No matter the type of headlights, our trained technicians will be able to assist with any issues. Having your lights checked help you to see any dangerous issues on the road. On top of headlamp servicing, other lighting aspects of your vehicle can be inspected including:
- Hazard flashers
- Brake lights
- Interior lamps
- Turn signals
- Park lights
- Tail lights
Overall, there are services available to make sure that the exterior lighting of your vehicle, as well as your windshield wipers, are working correctly.
