Blade inspection

Hyundai Tucson: Wiper blades. Contamination of either the windshield or the wiper blades with foreign matter

Contamination of either the windshield or the wiper blades with foreign matter can reduce the effectiveness of the windshield wipers.

Common sources of contamination are insects, tree sap, and hot wax treatments used by some commercial car washes. If the blades are not wiping properly, clean both the window and the blades with a clean cloth dampened with washer fluid.

CAUTION

To prevent damage to the wiper blades, arms or other components, do not:

  • Use gasoline, kerosene, paint thinner, or other solvents on or near them.
  • Attempt to move the wipers manually.
  • Use non-specified wiper blades.

✽ NOTICE

Commercial hot waxes applied by automatic car washes have been known to make the windshield difficult to clean.
