Changing Your Wipers: A Small Price To Pay For Your Safety

When was the last time you changed your wipers? Does it still wipe as well as it did on the first day? What about inconsistent wipes? If any of these questions come up frequently, it is certainly time to change those wipers. Living in a climate that is perpetually hot and raining makes it crucial for owners to change their wipers. This is where Bosch’s Advantage wipers come in.

 

A Bosch Automotive Aftermarket survey has revealed that 35 per cent of Malaysian drivers spend an average of RM 21 – RM 40 on wiper blades. This is followed by 28 per cent and 15 per cent spending RM 41 – RM 60 and RM 80 – RM 120 respectively. From the survey, it was also revealed that 70 per cent of Malaysian drivers viewed wipers as very important for driver and passenger safety. However, 53 per cent of drivers polled indicated that they stretched the lifespan of their wipers beyond 23 months; while only 32 per cent changed their wiper blades every year. Bosch recommends drivers to inspect the condition of their wiper blades regularly after the six-month mark, and to replace them once every year. “While many wipers today can last up to a year, we highly recommend inspecting the wiper blades every six months for wear and tear,” said Pang Yoon Kong, country manager of Bosch Automotive Aftermarket Malaysia.

 

Bosch Wiper Blade Hook Installation 

The Bosch Clear Advantage wiper is equipped with a hassle-free quick clip adapter that enables drivers to replace the wiper blades conveniently in just one step. The wiper blade’s rubber is also coated with graphite to reduce friction between the blade and the windscreen for a smooth and quiet wiping performance. In addition, the flat blade wiper is equipped with a mono Evodium steel spring that spans the entire length of the blade, creating a uniform pressure throughout the wiper blade against the windscreen.
