Clean and Check your Windscreen, Wipers, and Washer Fluid
Run a finger down the blades of your wipers to feel for nicks and splits. Replace them if needed, or wipe with a damp cloth and leave stood up to dry if they’re just a bit dirty. Test your washer fluid and top it up of needed. Is the spray powerful enough, are there any blockages? Make sure to use a more concentrated mixture to avoid it freezing in the cold, and to ensure it can take on gritter salt! Check your windscreen for damage, and get chips repaired as they can grow and crack in the cold weather. If you have a crack, even if it’s not impairing your view yet, call a professional! Clean your windscreen thoroughly and use a rain repellent (available at most auto stores) to help keep it free from streaks and stains.
