There is nothing quite like a leisurely spring drive out on the open road, just you in your MINI Cooper! Whether you have a Countryman or a Cooper S, driving can be just plain fun! However spring and the start of thunderstorm season is upon us. If you have ever been caught in a flash storm and turned on your wipers only to realize that they are not moving the water off your windshield like they should, you know it is not a good feeling! Most people realize that they need to change their wipers blades after a dangerous incident like that. So that you literally don’t get caught out in the rain, here are a few tips on when to change the windshield wipers of your MINI Cooper.
Most manufacturers recommend changing your wiper blades once or twice a year. If your gravitating towards the once a year frequency understand that the extreme weather here in Illinois (snow storms to thunderstorms) really necessitate a more frequent changing. It is a great practice to inspect your blades at every oil change (something our MINI Cooper technicians do as part of our routine safety inspection with every oil change). Another opportune time to check your windshield wipers is after a severe storm such as snow accumulation of over six inches, ice or an unusually heavy rain storm. This type of weather can quickly wear down the wipers of your MINI Cooper. If the blades have a dry appearance then a change is in their near future. If they are cracked, then it is a good idea to change them immediately!
