Money Saving Tips for your Wipers

Well with winter comes cold weather. Money saving tip: After driving home in the rain or snow, make sure you turn your wipers off and let them “park” Then turn off the car. Why? Well if you turn the key off with the wipers on, they will stop right away on the glass, and freeze in that position. Now here is the problem: the next morning you start the car and the wipers will try to move or park, but are frozen in place, this can damage the wiper motor, wipers or the linkage, with new cars getting lighter and lighter to save fuel the wiper linkage is often plastic and replaced as unit. Please pass this on the younger drivers too! Cheers Mark
