A clean windscreen is important for your safety when driving in either dry or wet weather.  Water and effective wiper blades keep the screen clean.  If you drive into the sun with a dirty windscreen, you will see the reason – basically it will be very difficult to see anything. 

The water is stored in a reservoir, and on demand, can be sprayed onto the screen, which is then cleaned by some wiper action.  So, remember to look for the washer switch as well as the wiper switch when you are about to start driving a different vehicle.

Wiper blades eventually need replacing as they become ineffective. When wipers begin to squeak, chatter, skip, smear or streak, driving visibility will become severely reduced.  Not replacing the wipers can lead to damage of the glass surface.  Replacement wiper blades are readily available at any automotive spares shop including Repco, Autobarn or Supercheap.

It is important to buy wiper blades that suit your vehicle.  There is usually a guide in each store that will help you select the correct blades, otherwise ask someone in the store for some help.  It is always good to get someone with a little know-how to demonstrate the replacement procedure the first time.  It is actually a very simple procedure to replace wiper blades, but worth finding out the correct way the first time.
