HELLO AND WELCOME TO THE FORD CENTRE. WE ARE A FAMILY RUN BUSINESS WHO SPECIALISE IN FORD PARTS. WE PRIDE OURSELVES IN WHAT WE DO HERE AT THE FORD CENTRE.

BELOW IS SOME ADVICE WHEN DEALING WITH WIPER BLADES , WIPER ARMS AND SMEARS ON WINDSCREENS.

WIPER BLADES CHECK POINTS

1, ONLY FIT GOOD QUALITY REPLACEMENT BLADES.

2, WHEN REMOVING THE OLD BLADES MAKE A NOTE ON HOW IT WAS FITTED, FITTING NEW BLADES CAN BE A TRICKY EXERCISE, NOTE DOWN HOW THE OLD ONE CAME OFF, THIS CAN SAVE A LOT OF TIME.

3, WHILE THE WIPER BLADE IS REMOVED,TAKE CARE NOT TO KNOCK THE WIPER ARM FROM ITS LOCKED POSITION, OR IT COULD STRIKE THE GLASS.

4, PUT THE NEW BLADE INTO POSITION THE SAME WAY ROUND AS THE OLD ONE. MAKE SURE THAT IT CLICKS INTO PLACE SECURELY, OTHERWISE IT MAY COME OFF WHILE IN USE, THIS WOULD RESULT IN DAMAGING THE GLASS.

PLEASE BEWARE THAT FITTING GUIDELINES WILL VARY ACCORDING TO THE MODEL OF YOUR CAR, IT WILL ALSO VARY IF YOU ARE NOT USING GENUINE FORD WIPER BLADES.

FOR CENTRE TIP - If smearing still persists and is still a problem even after new blades are fitted, then try cleaning the glass with neat screen wash additive or methylated spirits.

CHECK THE CONDITION OF THE WIPER BLADES, IF THEY ARE CRACKED OR LOOK DAMAGED AND SHOW SIGNS OF DETERIATION THEN YOU SHOUD REPLACE THEM.

TO REMOVE A WINDSCREEN WIPER BLADE, PULL THE ARM FULLY AWAY FROM THE GLASS UNTIL IT LOCKS. SWIVEL THE BLADE THROUGH 90 DEGREES. PRESS THE LOCKING TAB WITH YOUR FINGERS AND SLIDE THE BLADE OUT OF THE ARMS HOOKED END.

REMEMBER TO CHECK THE TAILGATE WIPER ALSO, USE THE SAME TECHNIQUE TO CHANGE THE WIPER BLADES.
